Backing Up Helix ALM Databases
The Helix ALM Server database and project databases should be backed up regularly.
Helix ALM native server databases
Helix ALM native projects
Helix ALM (and TestTrack 2012 - 2016.1)
Use the Helix ALM Native Backup Command Line Utility to safely back up project databases. Download the utility.
TestTrack 2011.2 and earlier
Each project is stored in a subdirectory in the TTServDb directory. Projects may be stored in other locations depending on your configuration.
RDBMS server and project databases
If the Helix ALM Server database or projects are stored in RDBMS databases, ask your DBA for help with backups.
When you back up the server database and projects from the RDBMS, you should also back up the project directories on the Helix ALM Server that contain attachments, SoloBug files, and report stylesheets. Copy the project subdirectories to back them up.

cp -R /var/lib/HelixALM/TTServDb/TTDbs/SampleDB/* /tape/bkup
Full backup (Linux)
