Administrators can back up and restore configuration and database files for a Warehouse Connector, so if information is lost or deleted, it can be restored.

Back Up Files

To back up the configuration files:

  1. Create a tar.gz of the folder lockbox stored under /etc/netwitness/ng
    cd /
    tar -cvPjf wc-lockbox.tar.gz /etc/netwitness/ng/lockbox
  2. Create a tar.gz of the files NwWarehouseconnector.cfg, multivalue-bootstrap.xml, multivalue-users.xml (if present)  stored under /etc/netwitness/ng
    tar -cvPjf wc-files.tar.gz /etc/netwitness/ng/NwWarehouseconnector.cfg /etc/netwitness/ng/multivalue-bootstrap.xml /etc/netwitness/ng/multivalue-users.xml
