Hi all,
I have developed scripts for backup isa settings and dhcp as well.
I merged these scripts in a simple and smart application .
it will make exported .xml well-organized by date . "day.month.year"

just one-click will export your isa settings and give it a date mark.
and with another click importing will be done as well.
if any one need an especial edition , just post it here , will be pleasure to help.
read "Read Me.txt" file .
Download



this forum gave me alot , and this is a simple way to say thanks. ;)
i have mailed info@isaserver.org to test this program , but i didn't get the answer yet . But it was tested by me and others, it works fine as well as it should .
i hope it help you .

Hi.

I started to test this tool.

I have C & E , and my cd drive is D !!

i ran the tool and clicked on the backup, then i got a pop up box saying "xml file was exported successfully" but i can not find it anywhere !!

I believe you need to remove the obligation of having a D drive !!

pop up a box and let the users specify where he/she want to store the xml file.

thanx for reply,
you nedd to change your cd to "E:\" and current e:\ to D:\
you can do it from disk management , right click "Change Drive Letter.."

you found nothing ,because the D:\ you have is read only .

if you don't want to change the drive letters , i can editit this version for you .
waiting for you ...

Hi,

what if i dont have 2 paritions disk ?  and only C. would this mean that i will not be able to use your app !!

not all ppl will go and change their drive letters just to run an app.

Anyway, i think i have found the xml file. If you do not have a D drive, then a folder inside C:\Program Files\Backup Manager will be created and the xml file will be stored there.

sure you did   but what you've found is a file name "ISA-Backup.xml"
if you have a D:\
you will find :
D:\ISA-Backup\ISA-Backup-15.08.2008

the reson for D:\
the backup files should't be on the same system partion to keep them safe .

actually i found  a 640 kb xml file : ISA-Backup-15.08.2008.xml

and it has my configurations.

as a test, you can remove the drive letter on your D drive, so that you have only 1 parition , C. and then test your tool. You will find your backup xml file inside the c:\program files\backup manager\ISA-Backup-15.08.2008.xml

i will take this file and try to restore it on another ISA Server late this night.

ok but as i have asked before, what if a user does not have D drive ? do you want to force the user to change his drive letters ?

what if a user has a single partition C only !

Let the user has the ability to browse , and select the path, for example i store my backups on a mapped network drive.
