Restoring from a Backup



Backups can be used to restore your TimeIPS data to a new (or replacement) TimeIPS system.

 

 

 

To restore the backup:


  1. Save the backup file to your computer.
    Note: A backup of at least 1.11.x is recommended for the most complete preservation of data and configuration. It is however possible to use a backup as old as 1.8.33.
  2.  

  3. Restore to factory defaults. (This will take you directly to step 4. If the sequence is interupted, pick up at step 3.)
  4.  

  5. Browse to the IP address of your TimeIPS system.
    TIP: If you are not sure of the IP address for your TimeIPS system, and it is powered on, type the following on the small keypad to obtain the IP address of your TimeIPS system: +-00+- [ENTER].

  7. Accept the User's Agreement.
