Scheduling a Backup in Corporate Compliance v3.0

This support note applies to:

  • AO Corporate Compliance (AU)
  • AE Corporate Compliance (AU)
Article ID: 36065

In MYOB Corporate Compliance version 3.0 the backup scheduling process is no longer automatic as it was in version 2.2 and prior.

Corporate Compliance backups MUST be performed on the CC server, not workstations.

To backup Corporate Compliance on the server, you can use the Corporate Compliance backup module. Alternatively, you can configure a regular backup of Corporate Compliance to be performed through a Windows Scheduled task on the Corporate Compliance server.

Following Knowledge Base article details how to schedule the backup task for Corporate Compliance 3.0 using Windows Task Scheduler.

Some options may differ depending on the operating system you have on your server. In this situation, please refer to your Microsoft Help resources.

To add a scheduled task for Corporate Compliance backups
  1. Follow the menu path: Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Task Scheduler.
