Backing Up Repositories

Regularly create backups of the development repositories to safeguard your configuration work. A daily backup takes only a few minutes and helps prevent lost work. You can either back up the entire development database, using the utilities provided by your RDBMS vendor, or use the Siebel utility REPIMEXP.EXE to export the contents of a specific repository to a flat file. For more information, see Siebel Tools Reference.

You can also use REPIMEXP.EXE to integrate Siebel repositories into your source code control environment. After you finish configuring a specific version of your application, export the repository to a flat file and keep this file in an archive or source code control system. Include other application components in the archive, such as client configuration files (CFG), Siebel repository files (SRF), batch scripts, and Enterprise Integration Manager configuration files (IFB).
