Backup MLA/MLM

Connector Service Configuration#

When backing up MindLink Anywhere we want to focus on Static Service Configuration.
This is the Management Center configuration, which defines the connection to Skype, network ports, certificates, superuser account etc. (this data only gets updated when you “save changes” in the Management Center).

The Config folder and MindLink.Core.Host.exe config file should be backed up.

Static Configuration Master Copy#

The Management Center has its own “master” copy of the static configuration, which it then “applies” to the static config that the Host uses when you save changes. To make sure the Management Center doesn’t lose the configuration, also backup this master copy – this is all stored in the staging.config file in the ManagementTool folder.
