About restoring configuration data

You can use a saved archive to restore a managed device in your network in the event that a system failure occurs, or if you want to roll back to a previous configuration. Centrally restoring configurations for devices saves you time because you are not required to log on to each individual device. If you have stored a UCS archive for Enterprise Manager itself, you use this same process to restore that configuration.

Restoring a UCS archive of a configuration

You must have a stored UCS archive to restore a configuration for a managed device (including Enterprise Manager™ itself).

Restoring an archive to a managed device overwrites that device's current configuration.

  1. On the Main tab, click Enterprise Management > Devices > Device List. The Device List screen opens.
  2. Click the name of the device for which you want to restore a configuration.
  3. On the menu bar, click Archives. The Device Archives screen opens.
  4. Click the name of the archive that you want to restore.
  5. Click Restore to restore the configuration archive to the selected device. The UCS archive is device-specific. You can restore a configuration only to the device from which it was saved.
The selected configuration overwrites the device's previous configuration.

Restoring an advanced UCS archive for device management files

If you created a backup for the Enterprise Manager™ that includes all of the information required to manage your devices, you can restore that configuration.
Restoring a UCS configuration archive enables you to continue managing devices in your network after a system failure.
  1. At the command line of the Enterprise Manager you want to restore, log in as root.
  2. Copy the Enterprise Manager UCS archive, that you previously created with the em-backup script, to the Enterprise Manager system that you want to restore.
  3. Type the following command, where <archive_name> is the path and file name for the archive: em-restore <archive_name>.ucs. The script begins the process of restoring all of the configuration and imported data for each managed device in its network.
  4. When the process completes, delete the <archive_name>.ucs file from Enterprise Manager, and reboot the system.
