We are excited to announce that we have launched our new Hive Community! HiveNation will remain as an archive, but all new posts, discussions, and articles will be created on Hive Community. You can visit our new community at thehivecommunity.aerohive.com
Generally one back up every week would be more than enough. We tend to recommend backups before and after any major changes or updates to the hive manager or your configuration objects (i.e. adding a new Network Policy, updating the Hive Manager to a newer version, etc). At the very least I would recommend a back up once a month, just in case.
