Backup and Recovery

We recommend to periodically backup the configuration and the logs databases to have a working copy of them to prevent data loss in case of hardware malfunction. Should these databases be missing in such cases, all internal configuration will need to be recreated and the log data will get lost forever.

The following chapters describe the process of backing up the data and restoring it on two different RDBMSes - the embedded H2 server and the external Oracle server.

  • If the internal configuration/logs resides in the internal H2 server, please call appropriate Virtual Procedures on the DataVirtuality Server to backup data and a provided script file to restore it. See the following chapter for a description of the stored procedure

  • If you use an external relational database server to keep configuration / logs, please use native database tools to backup / restore this data
