Specify a backup folder

Define a backup location to back up your NTA Flow Storage Database. Define the backup location either in the Configuration Wizard immediately after the SolarWinds NTA installation, or later using the NTA Flow Storage Configurator tool.

Check the backup location

  1. Under NTA Flow Storage Database Settings, next to Backup, click Backup Scheduler.
  2. See the location next to Backup Destination.

Change the backup location

  1. Log in to the server hosting your main poller.
  2. Start the NTA Flow Storage Configurator in the SolarWinds Orion program folder.
  3. Enter an absolute path in Backup NTA Flow Storage Database Data File Path, or click Browse to select a folder.

    Store backups in a different folder than the NTA Flow Storage Database.

  4. Click OK.

If you have the NTA Flow Storage Database installed locally on the main poller, you can also launch the Configuration Wizard and change the backup folder during the configuration.
