3 Download and Install AhsayOBM
From v7.15.0.0 or above Ubuntu Linux LTS distributions are officially supported, AhsayOBM can be
installed from a *.deb package using dpkg for online installation or from *.sh package for both online

Online Installation
Offline Installation
Version
Supported
From v7.3.2.0 onwards.
From v7.15.0.0 onwards.
Installation
Time
Takes more time as it needs to
download the binary and
component files (80MB to 132MB
depending on operating system)
each time the installation is run.
Online installer size is 6KB to
3.5MB depending on operating
system as it contains only the initial
installation package files.
Takes less time as all the
necessary binary and component
files are already available in the
offline installer and offline installer
can be downloaded once but
reused many times.
Offline installer size is 80MB to
132MB depending on operating
system as it contains all the
necessary binary and component
files.
Deployments
Suitable for single or small amount
of device installations.
Suitable for sites with fast and
stable internet connection as
internet connection is needed each
time when an installation is run.
A slow internet connection will
result in longer installation time and
interrupted or unstable internet
connection may lead to
unsuccessful installation.
Ensures the latest version of the
product is installed.
Suitable for multiple or mass
device installations.
Suitable for client sites with
metered internet connections as
once the offline installer is
downloaded, internet connection is
not needed each time when an
installation is run.
May need to update the product
version after installation if an older
offline installer is used.

backup set is being created.
You can choose from one of the following two Backup mode options:
Sequential – if there are multiple destinations configured in the backup set,
AhsayOBM will backup to one destination at a time.
Concurrent - if there are multiple destinations configured in the backup set,
AhsayOBM will backup to all destinations at the same time or concurrently.
Note: For backup sets with multiple destinations, sequential backup mode will take longer
compared with concurrent backup mode.

encryption key preset by the system which provides the most secure protection.
You can choose from one of the following three Encryption Type options:
Default – an encryption key with 44 alpha numeric characters will be randomly
generated by the system.
User password – the encryption key will be the same as the login password of your
AhsayOBM at the time when this backup set is created. Please be reminded that if
you change the AhsayOBM login password later, the encryption keys of the backup
sets previously created with this encryption type will remain unchanged.
Custom – you can customize your encryption key, where you can set your own
algorithm, encryption key, method and key length.
Note: For best practice on managing your encryption key, refer to the following KB article.
https://forum.ahsay.com/viewtopic.php?f=169&t=14090
Click Next when you are done setting.

8 Restoring Data
Login to AhsayOBM
Login to the AhsayOBM application according to the instructions in section 4 Login to AhsayOBM.
Restore Data
1. Click Restore on the AhsayOBM main interface.
2. After logging in to your backup account successfully, you should see a screen showing all
the available backup sets for restore. Double click on the one you would like to restore.
www.bobcloud.net 43
3. Click on the location from which you would like to restore the data from.
4. Select to restore files from a specific backup job, or from all files available, then select the
files or folders that you would like to restore.
There are two options from the Select what to restore drop-down menu:
Choose from files as of job – this option allows you to select a backup version
from a specific date and time to restore.
www.bobcloud.net 44
Choose from ALL files – this option allows you to restore all the available
backup versions for this backup set. Among all the available backup versions,
you can even select only some of the backup versions of a file to restore.
Below is an example showing all the available backup versions of the file File
snapshot testing.txt. The latest version is shown in solid black color and all the
previous versions are shown in grey color. You can identify the file version from
the Date modified column.
When the restore is done, you will see all the selected backup versions in the
restore destination. The latest backup version has the file name as the original
file, while the previous versions have the time stamps added to their file names
for easy identification.
5. Click Next to proceed when you are done with the selections.
www.bobcloud.net 45
6. Select to restore the files to their Original location, or to an Alternate location, then click
Next to proceed.
Original location – the backed up data will be restored to the computer running
the AhsayOBR under the same directory path as on the machine storing the
backup source. For example, if the backup source files are stored under
root/Downloads folder, the data will be restored to root/Downloads as well on
the computer running the AhsayOBR.
Alternate location – you can choose to restore the data to a location of your
choice on the computer where AhsayOBR is running.
www.bobcloud.net 46
7. Click Show advanced option to configure other restore settings:
Restore file permissions
By enabling this option, file permissions of the operating system files will be
restored. File permission defines, for example, the right to view or change a file
by the system owner/group/individual. If file permission is not restored properly,
there is a potential risk that the restored data could be viewed by group/individual
who is not supposed to have the access to.
Delete extra files
By enabling this option, the restore process will attempt to synchronize the
selected restore source with the restore destination, making sure the data in the
restore destination is exactly the same as the restore source. Any data created
after backup will be treated as “extra files” and will be deleted from the restore
source if this feature is enabled.
Example:
i) Two files are created under the Document folder 01, namely doc 1 & doc 2.
ii) A backup is performed for folder Document folder 01.
www.bobcloud.net 47
iii) Two new files are created, namely doc 3 & doc 4.
iv) A restore is performed for the Document folder 01, with Delete extra files
option enabled.
v) Since doc 3 & doc 4 have never been backed up, therefore they will be
deleted from Document folder 01, leaving only the two files that have been
backed up.
WARNING
Please exercise extra caution when enabling this feature. Consider what data
