Backing up WebSphere Application Server profiles (manageprofiles command)

You can back up your WebSphere® Application Server profiles with the manageprofiles command before you upgrade a server or for routine system backups in disaster recovery procedures.

Before you begin

Ensure that the following components are stopped:


  1. Open the command prompt.
  2. Browse to the <was_home>\bin directory. For example, type:
    cd <was_home>\bin
    For example:

    cd c:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\bin

  3. Use the WebSphere Application Server manageprofiles command with the backupProfile parameter.

    manageprofiles.bat -backupProfile -profileName <profile_name> -backupFile <backupFile_name>

    For example:
    manageprofiles.bat -backupProfile -profileName AppSrv01 -backupFile c:\backup\
    Network deployment
    manageprofiles.bat -backupProfile -profileName Dmgr01 -backupFile c:\backup\
