Backing up the Farm configuration


  • Hi Guys,

    I am about to backup the farm configuration of one of my clients so is there something I need to keep in mind before doing it ? I mean apart from giving permission to the folder is there any other prerequisites such as cannot do it during business hours or so on ?

  • Hi spadminspadmin, 

    Performing a backup does not affect the state of the farm. However, it does require resources and might slightly affect farm performance when the backup is running. You can avoid performance issues by backing up the farm during hours when farm use is lowest, such as outside office hours.

    Refer to the following article about back up farm configurations in SharePoint Server:

    Best Regards,
