7.5 Backing Up User Information

Because SecureLogin data is stored in the directory, existing directory backups also back up Novell SecureLogin data. In addition, the local cache synchronizes with the directory for further redundancy of data.

Backing up or restoring by using the SecureLogin menu options is typically performed by users who have been disconnected from the network for long periods of time, such as weeks or months.

To create a backup file:

  1. In the notification area, right-click the Novell SecureLogin icon, then select Advanced > Backup User Information. The Save Settings dialog box is displayed.

  2. Select a folder where you want to store the backup file.

    The file can be stored in any location.

  3. In the File name field, specify a name for the backup file.

  4. Click Save. The Password dialog box is displayed.

  5. In the Password field, specify a password.

  6. Click OK.

    The encrypted and password-protected backup file is saved, and a confirmation message appears.

  7. Click OK.
