Limited Resources with the Tivoli Application
Time: The Tivloi Backup server can only process a limited number of backups in a 24-hour period. The ITS backup system not only performs backups for desktop computers, but also for the entire data center.
If using the Tivoli application, computer must be connected to Baylor's Local Area Network.
Files must have some type of conduit on which to connect to the backup system in order to move copies of the files to storage. Backups can only occur when the computer is connected to Baylor's wired (Ethernet) network. If the computer is turned off, the backup service cannot be performed.
Only Work Related Files should be Backed up using Tivoli.
Due to the limited amount of physical storage and in compliance with the Technology Systems Usage Policy BUPP025, only work-related files are eligible to be backed up with our Tivoli backup service. Backup services for personal files will be the responsibility of the client.
