Use a backup system.
If you need a more concise answer you have to describe your environment in detail.
Also check SAS maintenance documentation for input.

Hello @subha_4225,


as @LinusH indicated, more details would help. Since you are asking for general question, please give a look to this:


SAS provides SAS Metadata backup, and the great SAS Deployment Backup and Recovery tool. But do not forget you still need to back your data and other components, with an enterprise Backup tool.


- Great intro by @anjahttps://communities.sas.com/t5/Administration-and-Deployment/Best-Practices-for-Backing-Up-and-Resto...

- Great overview: https://support.sas.com/resources/papers/contentbackup.pdf

- Good ppt: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EbKJ1hQYLbQ


And if your SAS server is a virtual machine, do not forget to have good snapshots Smiley Happy

Hope it helps.If your question is more specific, please do not hesitate to share.

Kind regards,
