Backing up and restoring the RM index files

The Requirements Management (RM) application uses Jazz Foundation Service (JFS) files for various query and search operations; these files must be backed up. As the server administrator, you can use the repository tools (repotools) commands to back up and restore the JFS indexes.

For information about the preferred steps for backing up and restoring the index files, see Backup and restoration of Jazz Foundation Service index files for IBM® Engineering Requirements Management DOORS® Next (DOORS Next) on the Deployment wiki.

Note: This process creates and restores backups of the JFS indexes only; it does not create a backup of the DOORS Next database. For information about performing a full backup, see Backing up the IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM) on the Deployment wiki.
