We recommend that you create regular backups to ensure that your Qlik NPrinting deployment can be recovered in the event of a system failure or when a node in your deployment needs to be moved or replaced.
When you create a backup of your Qlik NPrinting deployment, the key component that you are backing up is the Qlik NPrinting repository. For more information, see Architecture.
Qlik NPrinting is delivered with a utility, Qlik.Nprinting.Manager.exe, that is used to create backups and restore deployments. The Qlik.NPrinting.Manager.exe file is installed by default, and is located in %Program Files%\NPrintingServer\Tools\Manager. This tool is a console application and must be executed from a command prompt. The resulting backup contains a Qlik NPrinting repository database dump file, and related files in a .zip archive.
