          Look at this doc chapter 2

           

          http://community.landesk.com/support/docs/DOC-2681

           

          The folders are not that large so I would just backup %ProgramFiles%\LANDesk and subfolders. I would also backup IIS. You did not mention what OS your cores is running.

            Here's what I use to back up my Core to a mapped T: drive

            The job is a batch file that runs weekly via LANDesk Managed Task:        LOCEXEC01=T:\_BAK\LDBAK.BAT

             

            Note that my LANDesk Management Suite is installed on the D: drive, not the C: drive.  Because of this, I must also back up C:\Program Files\LANDesk because that is where the CORE CERTIFICATE lives!

              Thanks a lot for the answer...i'll make some tests and let you know the results...by the way, my core server is running on a Windows 2003 Server Enterprise Ed. SP2.

              Thank you again for the help.
