You can manually restore the View Connection Server LDAP configuration files and View Composer database files that were backed up by View.

You manually run separate utilities to restore View Connection Server and View Composer configuration data.

Before you restore configuration data, verify that you backed up the configuration data in View Administrator. See Backing Up View Connection Server and View Composer Data.

You use the vdmimport utility to import the View Connection Server data from the LDIF backup files to the View LDAP repository in the View Connection Server instance.

You can use the SviConfig utility to import the View Composer data from the .svi backup files to the View Composer SQL database.

Note:

In certain situations, you might have to install the current version of a View Connection Server instance and restore the existing View configuration by importing the View Connection Server LDAP configuration files. You might require this procedure as part of a business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) plan, as a step in setting up a second datacenter with the existing View configuration, or for other reasons. For more information, see "Reinstall View Connection Server with a Backup Configuration" in the View Installation document.
