  • Procedure
  • Additional Information

The Ops Manager Application manages backups. To ensure high availability of backups, deploy sufficient number of Ops Manager hosts with a load balancer. To learn how to deploy Ops Manager with high availability, see Configure a Highly Available Ops Manager Application.

Even though we recommend that you deploy Ops Manager with high availability, you must run at least one Backup Daemon on a server.

The following procedure demonstrates how to start and stop the Backup Daemon on a server.

  1. Start the Backup Daemon:

    /etc/init.d/mongodb-mms-backup-daemon start
  2. Stop the Backup Daemon:

    /etc/init.d/mongodb-mms-backup-daemon stop
  3. Restart the Backup Daemon:

    /etc/init.d/mongodb-mms-backup-daemon restart
  4. Check the status of the Backup Daemon:

    /etc/init.d/mongodb-mms-backup-daemon status

To move jobs from a lost Backup server to another Backup server, see Move Jobs from a Lost Backup Daemon to another Backup Daemon.
