After you back up the database, you can restore it. On Windows and UNIX hosts, the restore operation automatically stops the database, restores the backup database files, and restarts the database. The dbbackup script overwrites existing database (db) files before backing up or restoring the database. The database files are as follows:
vxpmdb.log. The script backs up or restores the
symcOpscache.db, and vxpmdb.log file (if it exists).
To restore a backed up OpsCenter database
On the OpsCenter server with backup data you want to restore, open a UNIX console or a Windows command prompt and log on as root (on UNIX) or as an administrator or user in the Administrators group (on Windows).
Open a Windows command prompt and log on as an administrator or user in the Administrators group.
Open a UNIX console and then log on as root.
All the paths that are shown in the steps that follow are the default database install paths. These paths may different for your site if the database was installed anywhere other than the default location.
WARNING: this operation will overwrite the active OpsCenter data on this host. Do you wish to continue ? [y/n] (n)
