Oracle Fusion Middleware Administration Guide for Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition

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.

Make sure you recover the system on the same hardware configuration. For example, the Solaris SPARC recovery mechanism should be used to restore Directory Server on Solaris SPARC.

  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.

    The instance-path must be the same as the original instance. 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.
