How does Backupify handle Google Apps domain name changes?
- Backupify/Datto SaaS Protection for G Suite
Backupify will not automatically rename a domain when its name changes in Google Apps.
The previous domain's users will become archived. To back up new data under the new domain name, you'll need to set up a new account or a new subdomain on the existing account, using the new domain name. You will need a Google App super admin account to make these changes.
Datto recommends keeping any archived data under the old profiles and using the new profiles to house any newly-backed-up data. The new accounts will not include any data from the archived accounts, but, that data remains under the original accounts.
When a Google Apps username is changed (such as when a domain name change occurs), the system treats the change as if the previous user was deleted from Google Apps.
If your old Google Apps domain name is completely shut down or inaccessible, click here to submit a support request, or give us a call at 1-800-518-7449. The Support team will need to manually re-activate your user account so that you can access the backups.
