Upgrades and Backups for On-Premises
Upgrades and backups for On-Premises include the following:
Every upgrade of Rally On-Premises is deployed as a new Rally VMware machine. We recommend bringing up a new version in parallel with the old version. For a complete set of upgrade instructions, refer to the Rally On-Premises Guide (please contact Rally Support for a copy).
Activate new features and seats
Every time a license has been uploaded, you must restart Rally Service in order for any changes to take affect. Use the Rally Service feature on the Control Panel to restart.
Schedule backups from the Backup/Restore feature in the Control Panel. To schedule a backup of your Rally application data:
- In the Control Panel, click the Feature menu, then Back Up/Restore.
- Click the Schedule tab.
- Select the Daily or Weekly Backup frequency option in the How Often section.
Continue to configure your schedule from the related drop-down lists to set the time and the date of the backup.
- Enter the username and password for your FTP or SFTP server.
- Enter the URL path to the storage folder that you choose (note the example format).
- Click Send.
A confirmation message returns informing you of the successful schedule. For example:
Daily backup has been scheduled for hour 12 AM on host:ftp://atlantis
- Click the Schedule tab again.
The Backup Status dialog box on the right now lists the scheduled backup.
Click the Delete this Scheduled Backup link at any time to delete the scheduled backup.
Store your backups
For storing backups, Rally highly suggests to stand up either FTP or SFTP servers to house all your data.
