Extreme Management Center version 8 - Database Restore

Information

 
TitleExtreme Management Center version 8 - Database Restore
Objective
Restore a database in NetSight Extreme Management Center version 8
Environment
  • NetSight version 8
  • Extreme Management Center version 8
Procedure
The database restore function for version 8 is different from prior versions and must be done via a cli command.  The user interface for the java applications and in EMC's OneView window don't have provisions to allow a database restore and can only be used to initialize the database to a default state.
 

The restore runs using the mysqlbackup_restore script in the <install directory>\scripts directory.

To restore the Management Center database backup:

  1. Ensure you are running the same version of Management Center used when creating the database backup on the Management Center server.
  2. Log into the system shell (via the local console or SSH) on the Management Center server as root on a Linux operating system or open a CMD prompt by selecting Run as administrator on a Windows operating system.
  3. Navigate to the scripts directory:
    • On a Windows server, enter cd "<install directory>"\scripts.
    • On a Linux server, enter cd <install directory>/scripts.
  4. Run the mysqlback_restore script:
    • On a Windows server, enter mysqlbackup_restore.cmd "<full backup directory structure configured on Backup/Restore tab, including path>"

      (e.g. mysqlbackup_restore.cmd "C:\Program Files\Extreme Networks\NetSight\backup\netsight_03272017/").
       
    • On a Linux server, enter ./mysqlbackup_restore.sh <full backup directory structure configured on Backup/Restore tab, including path>

      (e.g. ./mysqlbackup_restore.sh /usr/local/Extreme_Networks/NetSight/backup/netsight_03272017/).
