This chapter covers these topics:
31.1 About Migrating Folders Structure
The Folders structure for a Content Server instance can be migrated (exported or imported) by using the Archiver utility.
For information about how Archiver works, see Managing Archives Collections and Batch Files .
31.2 Exporting Folders Structure Data
This section describes the process and tasks for manually exporting data from the Content Server instance for backup, storage, or import to another Content Server instance. The Export function in the Archiver utility can be used to export Folders structure data. Note that this exports only a copy, the original data remains.
A manual export is a one-time export initiated from Archiver by an administrator. This creates an archive on the local Content Server instance.
Do not use Archiver as your primary method of disaster recovery; use standard backup systems for the database and file system. For information on backup systems, see Administering Oracle Fusion Middleware.
To manually export Folders structure data, follow this process:
- Create an archive where the exported Content Server data will be stored. For details, see Creating a New Archive.
- Select the archive in the Current Archives list.
- Add tables to the archive. For details, see Adding a Table to an Archive.
You must add the following tables to the archive:
- Initiate the export. For details, see Initiating the Export.
For more information on how to manage exports using the Archiver utility, see Exporting Data in Archives .
31.3 Importing Folders Structure Data
This section describes the process and tasks for manually retrieving data from an exported archive. Importing is typically used to obtain a copy of data from another Content Server instance or to restore data that has been in storage. The Import function in the Archiver utility can be used to import Folders structure data.
The Content Server instance to which you are importing must have the same metadata fields, security groups, and accounts as the instance that the archive was exported from. Errors can result if there are mismatches.
To manually import the Folders structure data, follow this process:
- Using Archiver, in the Current Archives list select the archive from which to retrieve data.
- Initiate the import. For details, see Initiating the Import.
For more information on how to manage imports using the Archiver utility, see Importing Data from Archives .
