Setting Up Backup/Restore Module
Backup/Restore Temporary Folder
DNP Enterprise Server uses backup temporary folder during backup and restore for intermediate file operations.
To configure temporary backup folder perform the following steps:
1. Using Windows Explorer create a new folder somewhere on the hard disk, e.g. c:\DNPBackups.
2. Allow "write" NTFS permissions on that folder for ES application pool identity. The pool of DNP Enterprise Server that has been upgraded from 1.5.3 to 2.x works under "NETWORK SERVICE" account, pool of clean DNP Enterprise Server 2.x works under "DNPEnterpriseServer" account, so those accounts should have "write" NTFS access to backups temporary folder.
3. Specify this folder in "System Settings" like described here.
