A missing backup may be due to an improper configuration of the FTP/SCP location on Encryption Management Server or remote FTP/SCP server when configuring the remote backup location using FTP or SCP.
In the Encryption Management Server\PGP Universal Server Backup Location you need to specify the following:
- Hostname (or IP Address)
- Directory (seen from the point of view of the user) *
- Port (according to the protocol and configuration of the FTP/SCP server)
Note: This will depend on how you configure the FTP or SCP server. For instance, you want to backup to X:/PGP-Backup :
Example 1 - default "home directory" of the user is "X:/PGP-Backup", so you have to configure in the PGP Universal Server the directory as: /
Example 2 - default "home directory" of the user is "X:/", so you have to configure in the PGP Universal Server the directory as: /PGP-Backup
An easy way to determine:
- Place a test file inside the directory you want to have the backups.
- With WinSCP or similar, open a session to the server.
- The first folder presented will be the root for that user, thus if you see immediately your test file you need to use / in the configuration window.
- If you see an higher-level directory, you need to browse until you find the desired directory. Then, within WinSCP (Commands > Open Terminal), open a console session and enter the command 'pwd', it will output the directory path you need to configure on Encryption Management Server\PGP Universal Server.
- \ (backslash) is used when the destination is a Windows directory
- / (forward slash) when the directory is in Unix-like systems
- Use the exact case (the destination might be case sensitive)
- Ensure that the user has read/write/delete permissions in the target directory
