To restore a Network Configuration Manager Data Image:
  • Run the restore.plscript located in [Product Directory]/tools/ directory using the perl restore.pl command. The restore.pl script must be run on the Network Configuration Manager Application server.

    Replace [Product Directory] with the path to the directory where Network Configuration Manager is installed.

    For Linux, /opt/smarts-ncm/tools/restore.pl

  • Pass the full path of the Data Image file to the script using the perl restore.pl [Product Directory]/data-image/backup-image-10.1.4.0.50.CS.Dec-02-2020-02.00.tgz

    Replace [Product Directory] with the path to the directory where Network Configuration Manager is installed.

  • The version and configuration of the Network Configuration Manager products that are installed when a Data Image is created must match the version and configuration of the Network Configuration Manager Products that are installed when the Data Image is restored.

    For example, if Network Configuration Manager 10.1.4 is installed when a Data Image is created, then Network Configuration Manager 10.1.4 must be installed when the Data Image is restored. If only Network Configuration Manager 10.1.4 is installed, the restoration of the Data Image would fail.
