I need to Backup PrimeInfra 1.3 and restore the Backup to 2.0

Hi ,

procedure for backup and Restore:

Option 1: From admin console – run following CLI: (please note that we must include "application NCS" although it's optional in CLI.  Without it, we may not be able to restore from the backup).

% backup filename repository repositoryName application NCS

Note: If using the command line backup, please stop the ncs server (ncs stop) otherwise the resulting backup coming out of it may be faulty (because backup job does not shut down the database during the backup).

Option 2: From gui, run server backup now:

% "Administration" -> "background tasks" -> select "NCS server backup" -> select "Execute now" -> GO

Option 3: Use nightly backup.  Can be setup using following steps:

% "Administration" -> "background tasks" -> click "NCS server backup" -> this will bring you to the nightly backup config page.

NOTE: When using CLI backup commands, we should always use "application NCS" option in order to backup application data not the whole appliance.

For Restore:

Restore should be performed with the command "restore repository application NCS" as well.

Hope it will help

Thanks-

Afroz
