Offline Backup and Restore

Offline Backup and Restore

If you do not require the Data Vault to be highly available, you can take the Data Vault Service off line before you perform the backup. Use any backup utility supported by your file system to perform an offline backup or restore.
Shut down the Data Vault Service before you start the process.
  1. View the configuration files to determine the directories where the Data Vault repository and data files are stored.
  2. Shut down the Data Vault Service.
    Shutting down the Data Vault Service also shuts down the Data Vault Agent on the server. If you have installed the Data Vault Agent on multiple servers, you do not need to shut down the Data Vault Agent on other servers.
  3. Copy the files to the backup location or restore the files from the backup location.
    • To back up the archive files, use your backup utility to copy the files from the Data Vault Service location to the backup location.
    • To restore the backup files, use your backup utility to copy the files from the backup location to the location of the Data Vault Service specified in the configuration files.
  4. Restart the Data Vault Service.
    The Data Vault Agent on the server also starts.
