Like on a windows drive share? no.

You'd have to FTP it with the script or setup a upload job to an http server.

Technically, yes. There is a Scheduled Jobs section at the bottom of Central Management. it lets you backup the config and upload it to a web server.

Currently, however, it only pushes the config to an HTTP/HTTPS server, no FTP yet.

Here is a thread that describes how to script it via FTP.

Thanks for the reply Erik!

I'm curious, though. Is there any reason scheduling a backup to a directory isn't possible? Is this being implemented in future versions?

You can do that now.

The scheduled jobs consist of two parts. Backup to local directory, and upload the file.

The Backup part works fine, the upload part lacks FTP as mentioned.

That's only local on the MWG7 though, right?

It doesn't seem possible for a remote file server.

Is it possible to use variables in name of backup file? For example "$(hostname)_$(date '+%Y%m%d-%u').backup"?
