How the Restore Business Process Service Works
The Restore Business Process service restores business process data that has been backed up and removed from the database and makes it available for viewing. The Restore Business Process service is normally run from the Archive Manager. When restoring archived data, the Restore Business Process service automatically detects if the backed-up data is stored in the incremental backup format introduced in Sterling B2B Integrator 4.1.1 or in the older format. It then restores the data to the restore tables accordingly.
Documents on disk that were backed up with their associated table data are restored to a specially created location on the disk. These documents are not restored to the location from where they were first archived. The specially created location keeps restored data out of the live system, and it also allows you to easily delete a restore.
Implementing the Restore Business Process Service
The Restore Business Process service is preconfigured as RestoreService. Do not create additional configurations. If needed, you can edit the RestoreService configuration of the Restore Business Process service in the Sterling B2B Integrator Admin Console.
