Restoring a database backup on Red Hat Enterprise Linux

If data loss or data corruption occurs, you can restore Unified Manager to the previous stable state with minimum loss of data. You can restore the Unified Manager database to a local or remote Red Hat Enterprise Linux system.

Before you begin

About this task

The restore feature is platform-specific and version-specific. You can restore a Unified Manager backup only on the same version of Unified Manager. You can restore a Red Hat backup file or a virtual appliance backup file to a Red Hat Enterprise Linux system.


  1. Log in as the root user to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux host on which Unified Manager is installed.
  2. If Unified Manager is installed in VCS setup, then stop the Unified Manager ocie and ocieau services using Veritas Operations Manager.
  3. At the command prompt, restore the backup: um backup restore -f /opt/netapp/data/ocum-backup/backup_file_name
    um backup restore -f /opt/netapp/data/ocum-backup/UM_7.1.N151113.1348_backup_unix_11-25-2016-04-45.7z
    If the folder name contains a space, you must include the absolute path or relative path in double quotation marks; for example: "/opt/netapp/data/ocum-backup/UM_7.1.N151118.2300_backup_rhel_11-20-2016-02-51.7z"

After you finish

After the restore operation is complete, you can log in to Unified Manager.
