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.

Prerequisites 

Before backing up and restoring the configuration and database files for Warehouse Connector, make sure there is enough disk space in the directory where the backup will be generated. 

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 -cvjf wc-files.tar.gz NwWarehouseconnector.cfg multivalue-bootstrap.xml multivalue-users.xml

To back up the database files:

  1. Create a tar.gz of the bulk folder stored under /var/netwitness/warehouseconnector
    cd /
    tar -cvPjf warehouseconnector.tar.gz /var/netwitness/warehouseconnector

Restore Archived Files

  1. Log on to the host you intend to restore from a saved backup using ssh.
  2. Change to the / directory.
    cd /
  3. Copy the necessary tar file wc-lockbox.tar.gz using a utility like SCP to the host in the / folder.
  4. Extract the tar file by using the following command:
    tar -xvPf wc-lockbox.tar.gz 
  5. Copy the necessary tar file wc-files.tar.gz using a utility like SCP to the host in the / folder.
  6. Extract the tar file by using the following command:
    tar -xvf wc-files.tar.gz 
  7. Copy the necessary tar file warehouseconnector.tar.gz using a utility like SCP to the host in the / folder.
  8. Extract the tar file by using the following command:
    tar -xvPf warehouseconnector.tar.gz 
  9. Delete the tar files.
    rm wc-lockbox.tar.gz
