Procedure order of restore steps


Taki Nakajo (1.1k2145) | asked May 20 '14, 4:07 a.m.
 A customer is planning backup and restore procedure on their CLM 4.0.4 / tomcat / DB2 system on a new server.

According to the online help:
https://jazz.net/help-dev/clm/index.jsp?re=1&topic=/com.ibm.jazz.repository.web.admin.doc/topics/t_jfs_backup.html&scope=null
 in the step a, the restoreJFSIndexes repository tools command cannot be run before starting the JTS server and also the  /conf/ app/teamserver.properties files is not restored yet.

Do I need to do the step after the step e instead?

Takki, we try to outline what you need to do here: https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Deployment/BackupCLM i might not be totally precise in every step, but it should give you a pretty good idea what you need to do and maybe a better overview than the help.

 Hi,  I read the article while submitting this question. The article was really helpful but I have this question.


The client's current steps for restoring are

1. Install CLM
2. restore apps_CONFIG
3. restore servers_CONFIG
4. RESTORE apps_JFSINDEXES (restoreJFSIndexes)
5. RESTORE FULLTEXTINDEX
6. start JTS server

But the step 4 gives a sever connection error.

I looked into the command and

repotools-ccm.bat -restoreJFSIndexes teamserver.properties=conf/ccm/teamserver.properties fromFile=backup.zip

needs to be run if the server is down. This means the order of the wiki entry is perfectly right and something else is missing. Maybe you did not restore the teamserver.properties, or something else is missing. I would suggest to carefully read the error messages.

 Yes, you are right. Now I can successfully ran the repotools-ccm.bat -restoreJFSIndexes command when the JTS server is down.
