A vaya ip-office: how-to to backup and restore the system configuration.

 

Mike's PBX technician help for users.The Avaya IP Office, Avaya’s best selling phone system, has been a go to phone system for small to mid-sized businesses. In January 2017 Avaya filed for bankruptcy and although we do not know what the future holds for Avaya, there are plenty of existing PBXs that will stay in operation for many years. Many IT admin employees find themselves in the role as the phone administrator, needing to make system changes and MAC (moves, adds and changes), and programming changes, to prevent the expense of having to call a phone vendor for every change. The instructions below explain step by step how to save a copy of the IP Office's current system configuration and when needed how to restore a system configuration from a saved copy. Remembering to complete a backup each time you're working on the system making changes will go a long way in avoiding future headaches.  Not having to use an old configuration file, after which changes were made to the system, will make life easier. When going back to an earlier out of date config file, you're sure to hear some complaints from users who find something that is not the way it should be.
