Saving and restoring the library configuration

Your library's configuration information is stored in a database on a compact flash card in the electronics tray. If there is an issue with your library's electronics tray or internal compact flash memory, the library configuration can be restored from a saved configuration file. Otherwise, the library may need to be completely reconfigured.

It is recommended to save the library configuration after initial installation and whenever the library configuration changes
Note: This task can only be accomplished by a user with an administrator or service role.

To download and license the CLI, go to Fix Central and specify the firmware release you are running, then download the CLI from the CLI Tool section.

Note: The CLI is supported for Java 6, 7, and 8. Java 9 and 10 are not supported.

Use the saveConfiguration command to save the configuration database to your computer. Use the restoreConfiguration command to restore a configuration database to the library.

The output file is assigned a name in the following format:
  • Diamondback_library-serial-number_<firmware-level>_SAVECONF_<time-stamp>.dbz
For example:
  • Diamondback_FA054_1.4.1.3-D00.T3_SAVECONF_20180323160237.dbz

The file is saved to the directory where the CLI is running.

Syntax

saveConfiguration -ssl

Parameter

-ssl
Required if SSL (HTTPS) is enabled.

Example

saveConfiguration

Example output


Done......
The library DB backup process has finished successfully.

The configuration information is saved to a file named TS6000_library-serial-number_<firmware-level>_SAVECONF_<time-stamp>.dbz in the directory where the CLI tool is stored.

Use the restoreConfiguration command to restore a configuration database to the library.

The configuration file has a name in the format Diamondback_<firmware-level>_SAVECONF_<time-stamp>.dbzand is stored in the directory where the CLI is running.

Note: You can only restore configuration files that were saved at the same library firmware level that you are currently running.

Syntax

restoreConfiguration <configuration_file_name>.dbz -ssl

Parameter

<configuration_file_name>.dbz

(Required.) The name (and the path, if necessary) of the configuration file to upload.

-ssl
Required if SSL (HTTPS) is enabled.

Example

restoreConfiguration Diamondback_1.4.1.3-D00.T3_SAVECONF_20180323160237.DBZ

Example output


Name: Diamondback_1.4.1.3-D00.T3_SAVECONF_20180323160237.DBZ
