We performed a DiRT backup of the secondary Unity server which is acting
primary. Using the Dirt backup we performed a DiRT restore on Unity server but recieved an error. The
error reads 'The local installation is not clean,some users or other
objects have been added.The restore can only be run on a clean, new install of
Does anyone know how to get out of this? I cannot assume all Unity installations are totally clean. Please help if you can.... thanks in advance
As the help states multiple times, DiRT demands a clean installation to prevent errors such as restoring to the wrong server or tryign to restore over an existing failover server (a no-no) and such - I've seen many disasterous errors from end users in the years since I launched that tool which is whay it's so unflexible on this count. TAC has command line over rides for such situations but as a rule starting with a clean install is always a good idea no matter what. The tool is designed and tested to be used in that situation.
