Backing up the IQ Server

We highly recommend that you establish a data recovery plan in accordance with your company’s policies.

The IQ Server keeps all its configuration and data, besides the startup configuration, in the sonatypeWork folder as configured in config.yml. By default, this folder will be the /sonatype-work/clm-server folder in your installation directory.

There is a tight coupling between report data stored in the file system and the data stored in the H2 database. If the IQ Server is running, any backup strategy for sonatypeWork runs the risk of an open database and may lead to a corrupt backup. To avoid this, the IQ Server should be shut down before performing the backup.
