Restoring data

After a system failure, you can restore the configuration, data, and database files. As a result, you can resume operation from the point of the last backup prior to the failure.

To restore data from backup media, complete the following steps:

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Restore the /opt/IBM directory, and restart TADDM.
    • Restore the C:\opt\IBM directory, and restart TADDM.
  2. Locate the backup copy of the data files.
  3. Open a command prompt window.
  4. Navigate to the directory where you installed the TADDM server.
  5. Copy the backup copy of the data files to the installation directory.
  6. Close the command prompt window.
  7. Start the TADDM server.
If the database is affected by the system failure, restore the database files using the documentation from the database vendor.
