The restore operation operates in a similar manner to the backup
operation. The same script is called (but supplied with the
-restore command-line option).
The restore operation performs the following steps:
Tungsten Replicator creates a temporary properties file, which contains
the location of the backup file to be restored.
Tungsten Replicator executes the configured backup/restore script in
restore mode, supplying any configured arguments, and the location of
the properties file.
The script used during the restore process should read the supplied
properties file to determine the location of the backup file.
The script performs all the necessary steps to achieve the restore
process, including stopping the dataserver, restoring the data, and
restarting the dataserver.
The replicator will remain in the
OFFLINE state once the restore
process has finished.
