Issue

In a Niagara G3 station, what is the difference between a Station Save and Backup Station?

Environment

Niagara G3

Cause

Help determine which feature (Station Save and Backup Station) meet the requirement.

Resolution

A Station Save only saves the config.bog file to the local device (if an ENC, it will save the file on the ENC; if an ENS, it will save it on the ENS computer). 

The Backup Station function performs a complete backup of the connected ENC or ENS station, saved as a dist file on the Workbench computer. The backup dist contains the entire station folder plus the specific NRE config used by that ENC or ENS platform, including license(s) and certificate(s).

The dist also contains pointers to the appropriate NRE core, Java VM, modules, and OS. If ever needed, you can restore a backup dist using the platform Distribution File Installer view. The backup dist file also contains the TCP/IP configuration of the host when it is backed up. When restoring the backup, the choice to restore these settings, or retain the TCP/IP settings currently in use by the target host is available.
