The Avaya IP Office, a top best selling phone system, has been a go to phone system for small to mid-sized businesses. Most of these systems are used as digital systems, as when they were bought customers were sold on the idea that later they could be IP as well. However, so many of them in the field have never had the any IP cards or IP phones added. 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. One of the most critical tasks of administrative duties is to make back-ups. A lot of grief can be prevented by taking a moment and creating a current backup copy. You can download copies of many Avaya Manuals in PDF.
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 When going back to an earlier out of date config file, you're certain to hear some complaints from users who discover something that is not the way it should be.
Is it backup or back up? Backup is a noun, and sometimes an adjective. As a noun, backup refers to an extra or secondary copy of information stored separately, in case of hardware failure or other data loss. Back-up is an alternative spelling of backup.
