When to Perform a Backup
You must create backups your Broker Server regularly. The frequency of these backups depends on the dynamic nature of your metadata. For example, if you have explicit-destroy clients whose subscriptions change often, you might want to perform routine backups more frequently than if client subscriptions are fairly static.
In addition to performing a regular backup, it is critical that you back up your Broker Server immediately after making any of the following changes:
*Adding a new Broker
*Adding, deleting, or modifying document types
*Adding, deleting, or modifying client groups
*Creating territories or changing their membership
*Changing ACL assignments
*Adding, deleting, or modifying a gateway
*Changing the keystore location, password, or Broker Server SSL identity
