5.10.1. Restoring a Specific Backup

To restore a specific backup, specify the location of the corresponding properties file using the format:

storage://storage-type/location

For example, to restore the backup from the filesystem using the information in the properties file store-0000000004.properties , login to the failed host:

  1. Shun the datasource to be restored, and put the replicator service offline using cctrl :

    [LOGICAL] /alpha > datasource host2 shun
    [LOGICAL] /alpha > replicator host2 offline
  2. Restore the backup using cctrl :

    [LOGICAL] /alpha > datasource host2 restore storage://file-system/store-0000000004.properties

    The supplied location is identical to that returned when a backup is performed.
