AVAYA Partner Backup and Restore You should back up the system programming periodically especially if you are changing the processor module or upgrading the system, or before and after any major programming changes. You can back up your system programming to either the internal memory of the PARTNER ACS R7.0 processor or a Backup/Restore PC Card. You can back up the programming automatically or manually. Occasionally, you may have to restore programming from the backed-up file. The system may automatically restore a backup translation image if the system detects that the battery backed up translation image is corrupted.
