When working in an environment where The Patron Edge is integrated with The Raiser's Edge, there are some things to take into consideration when planning a backup schedule or restoring either system from a backup. Please review the following points:
- When scheduling backups, ensure that the synchronization job is disabled at the time of backup.
- Back up both databases during the same maintenance window while the job is turned off.
- If restoring The Raiser's Edge database from a backup, you must also restore The Patron Edge from its backup that was taken at the same time. The reciprocal applies when restoring The Patron Edge database from a backup: You must also restore The Raiser's Edge from its backup that was taken at the same time.
