Creating a Backup Copy of the MEDITECH Data

After you back up the MEDITECH data, you can configure a job to copy the contents of the snapshot to a disk, tape, or cloud library to create a long-term copy of the backup.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Policies> Storage Policies > snap_storage_policy.
  2. Right-click the snap_storage_policy and click View Jobs.
  3. In the right pane of the CommCell Browser window, select the backup job for the MEDITECH data and then click Pick for Backup Copy.
  4. Right click the snap_storage_policy, point to All Tasks and then click Run Backup Copy.

    The Backup Copy dialog box is displayed.

  5. In the No of Simultaneous Job to run box, type the number of jobs that you want to run.
  6. Select the backup type and job initiation:
    1. In the Backup Type section, select Full.
    2. In the Job Initiation section, specify whether to run the backup now or if it will be scheduled.

      Note: If you selected Schedule, set up the schedule.

      For information on configuring a backup schedule, see Schedule Backups.

  7. Click OK to close the Backup Copy dialog box.
