Backing up the changeinfo directory
Contributors Download PDF of this page
If you plan to back up the changeinfo directory, you must configure the volume containing the directory as a metadata volume. Doing so tells the IBM Domino plug-in to create a Snapshot copy of the changeinfo volume after creating the Snapshot copy for database files.
You should already have identified the changeinfo volume as a volume to be backed up when you created the configuration file. For more information, see step task using the gui to create a configuration.
You use the META_DATA_VOLUME parameter in the configuration file to identify the changeinfo volume as a metadata volume. The parameter is not available in the GUI.
Open the configuration file in a text editor.
Configuration files reside in the Snap Creator installation directory, in a subdirectory named for the profile. On a Windows host, for example, C:\Program Files\NetApp\Snap_Creator_Framework\scServer4.1.x\engine\configs\Domino\Fuji15.conf, where Domino is the name of the profile and Fuji15.conf is the name of the configuration file.
Enter the name of the changeinfo volume in the META_DATA_VOLUME parameter.
The changeinfo volume should already be listed in the VOLUMES parameter.
The following example shows how to configure Fuji15_DomChangeInfo as a metadata volume:
VOLUMES=domino_vserver:Fuji15_DomDAOS,Fuji15_DomChangeInfo, Fuji15_DomTxn,Fuji15_DomData META_DATA_VOLUME=domino_vserver:Fuji15_DomChangeInfo
