General Recommendations

Netwrix recommends you to always make a backup of your Audit Database and Long-Term Archive before the upgrade.

  • To back up the Audit Database, start the Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio and connect to SQL Server instance. In the Object Explorer, right-click every database that contains audit data (by default, their names start with "Netwrix") and select Tasks Back Up.
  • To back up the Long-Term Archive, navigate to its location (by default, C:\ProgramData\Netwrix Auditor\Data), and then copy and archive the folder.
