Sun Java System Application Server Platform Edition 8.2 Release Notes

Cannot restore backed-up domain with another name. (ID 6196993)

Mirroring of a domain on the same Application Server installation cannot be performed using the backup-domain and restore-domain commands because the domain cannot be restored using a different name than the original, even though the asadmin restore-domain command provides an option to rename the domain. Renaming the backed-up domain appears to succeed, but attempts to start the renamed domain fail because the entries in the domain configuration are not changed, and startserv and stopserv use the original domain name to set paths.


The domain name used for restore-domain must be the same as that used for the original backup-domain command. The backup-domain and restore-domain commands in Application Server 8.2 work only for backing up and restoring the same domain on the same machine.
