It is not possible to backup the UI host on OA 7.0, while trying to configure the system backup by following the steps from [OA Maintenance Guide] Configure system backup.

[root@osscore ~]# /usr/local/pem/bin/ -z -t ui
Tag:                    ui
Database host:
Output directory:       /var/tmp/sysbackups
Use gzip:               yes
tar: Cowardly refusing to create an empty archive
Try `tar --help' or `tar --usage' for more information. error: backup failed


The script has not been adapted to 7.0 specifics yet, the improvement is expected in scope of requests POA-110903 and POA-113591.


Currently there are no workaround for this case. Please consider making full backup of UI server.
