In EEM 8.4, the restore is done using the DXTools. This document explains the usage of the tool to restore data.
After taking the backup of the data from a source machine in LDIF format, it can be restored to any EEM server.
- Copy the ldif file. On the EEM server where the data needs to be restored,
- Open the command prompt and run the command dxserver stop all to stop all DXServer services See Fig1
- Run the command dxloaddb -v -s -O iTechpoz-XXXXXX C:\xxxx.ldif. It will display the data loaded with the statistics at the end. See Fig 2
- The options for dxloaddb are:
-n Specifies that DXloaddb does not do any actions.
-O Specifies that DXloaddb includes standard operational attributes, such as password policy (for example, number of login attempts), and time stamp attributes. If this option is specified, DXloaddb creates any operational attributes that are not defined in the LDIF file.
-s Specifies that DXloaddb produces the following statistics concerning the datastore:
Total data size in MB
Total number of entries
Number of entries ignored
Amount of padding in the datastore file in KB
Average number of entries per MB
-v Specifies verbose output.
ldif-file The name of the LDIF file to load into the datastore.
DSA Defines the DSA whose datastore is to be loaded.
