ProcedureTo Restore for Disaster Recovery

For parts of this procedure, you can use DSCC to perform this task. For information, see Directory Service Control Center Interface and the DSCC online help. Other parts of the procedure can only be done using the command line.

  1. Install the same version of Directory Server that you had previously on the host.

  2. Create a server instance by using the dsadm create command.

    Use the same instance that was used at backup time. See Creating Suffixes.

  3. Restore the configuration directory instance-path /config.

  4. Restore the schema directory instance-path/config/schema .

  5. Restore the alias directory instance-path/alias .

  6. Ensure that the configuration for the restored server is correct.

    For example, the directory structure and plug-in configuration must be the same as on the backed up server.

  7. Restore your database files by using the command dsconf restore.

    Use the procedure in Binary Restore.
