Backing up deployment manager (dmgr) profile configuration in WebSphere Application Server 8.5 on windows

Follow the step to back up deployment manager (dmgr) profile configuration in WebSphere Application Server  8.5 on windows:

  If u want to watch installation process click on below link
          Before completing this task, U must read about some topics like
                          Why we take profile back up
                          When we used profile back up.... etc.
1.First check the dmgr status. Is it running or not by using serverStatus.bat command.
                  serverStatus.bat  -all

2.We can get dmgr profile back up from 's bin folder and dmgr's bin folder.
3.We can get  dmgr profile back up
                      1. when dmgr is Started status.
                      2. when dmgr is Stopped status.
4.Now let us start to complete this task.
5.Now I will take back up  of dmgr configuration file from 's bin folder.

6.Just use backupConfig.bat command to take back up file.
               /bin>backupConfig.bat -profileName  Dmgr01
7.U will get one zip file under bin folder. It is back up file of dmgr configuration.

8.That's it......
9.By default dmgr is stopped automatically when u take back up of dmgr configuration. U can take back up without stopping of dmgr. Just read and practice of the syntax.
                backupConfig [backup_file] [-nostop] [-quiet][-logfile ]
                [-replacelog][-trace][-username ] [-password ]
                [-profileName ] [-help]
