Hi Friends


plse let me know how to restore backup for LMS 2.6.

Correct Answer by Joe Clarke about 8 years 6 months ago

This backup procedure works for all applications except IPM. For IPM, you will need to run the "ipm dbrestore" command.


PROGRA~1 is the DOS 8.3 abbreviation for "Program Files". You should always use the 8.3 path names when working with LMS on Windows. C:\PROGRA~1\CSCOpx is the default location where LMS is installed on Windows. The example commands I posted are complete commands. You would only need to adjust them for the paths used on your server.

Shutdown the CiscoWorks Daemon Manager, then run:


NMSROOT/bin/perl NMSROOT/bin/restorebackup.pl -d /path/to/backup


If there is a generation number, you also need to specify "-gen NUMBER". For example, on Windows:


C:\PROGRA~1\CSCOpx\bin\perl C:\PROGRA~1\CSCOpx\bin\restorebackup.pl -d C:\backups


Solaris:


/opt/CSCOpx/bin/perl /opt/CSCOpx/bin/restorebackup.pl -d /backups/lms
