Summary
The backup process backs up both the database and the configuration files. By default, event-related and statistics-related database tables are not backed up due to their size, but you can choose to include them and some other optional configuration files. The process of backing up the SMS database is resource intensive, particularly if the server is under heavy load and the database is large. Take this into consideration when scheduling a regular backup or initiating an immediate backup.

From the SMS CLI

In  order to perform an SMS backup from the CLI, you have to run the following command at the CLI; 

                    set db.backup = yes.  

Setting this attribute to yes creates a local database backup with default options. The default options include the system configuration settings in addition to the most recent Digital Vaccine, TOS package and Custom Package (if installed).  This creates a local backup which is placed in the /mgmt/client/tmp directory. In addition this backup file can be downloaded from the Exports and Archives link from the SMS Server home page.
