Currently, there is no supported method to back up the Blue Coat Reporter 10.x VA instance. The
Resolution section below provides a workaround that has not been officially tested by Blue Coat, but has been successfully accomplished in the field.
CREATE A SNAPSHOT
Step 1--Stop Reporter (or Unload Database)
Reporter 10.1.4.2: In the CLI, enter: (enable mode) stop-reporter. This halts the Reporter service (allow time, as Reporter might complete a log processing action or find the best place to halt).
Previous 10.x versions: Unload existing database: Administration > General Settings > REPORTER SETTINGS > DATA SETTINGS > DATABASES.
Step 2--Create Snapshot with vSphere Client. In the VM interface, right-click the ReporterVM inventory and select Snapshot > Take Snapshot.
The VM displays the Take Virtual Machine Snapshot window.
Enter a unique Name; for example: ReporterVM-2016-08-31.
Leave the Description blank.
Select Snapshot the virtual machine's memory.
Click OK to create a Snapshot. ____________________________________________
Restore a Snapshot
Step 1 Right-click the ReporterVM inventory and select Snapshot > Snapshot Manager.
The inventory displays the available Snapshots.
Step 2 Select the most recent snapshot and click Go to.
The Recent Task window indicates when the restoration is complete.
Load the database: Administration > General Settings > REPORTER SETTINGS > DATA SETTINGS>DATABASES.
