dsbackup — Backup and restore backends

Synopsis

dsbackup {subcommand} {options}

Description

Backup and restore backends, manage backup files.

Options

The dsbackup command takes the following options:

Command options:

--offline

Indicates that the command will operate independently of the server process. It will run regardless of whether the server is started or stopped. When using this option with the restore sub-command, the server must be stopped; also as the command will write to server files, you should run the command as a user having the same filesystem permissions as the user running the server. Using this option with the create sub-command when the server is running is possible and supported. With JE Backends, the integrity of the backup is ensured by the process. With LDIF backends, avoid simultaneous changes to the backends. Default: false

Task Scheduling Options

--completionNotify {emailAddress}

Email address of a recipient to be notified when the task completes. This option may be specified more than once.

--dependency {taskID}

ID of a task upon which this task depends. A task will not start execution until all its dependencies have completed execution.

--errorNotify {emailAddress}

Email address of a recipient to be notified if an error occurs when this task executes. This option may be specified more than once.

-t | --start {startTime}

Indicates the date/time at which this operation will start when scheduled as a server task expressed in YYYYMMDDhhmmssZ format for UTC time or YYYYMMDDhhmmss for local time. A value of '0' will cause the task to be scheduled for immediate execution.

Subcommands

The dsbackup command supports the following subcommands:

dsbackup create

Take encrypted and signed backups of individual backends and send them to the desired location.

Options

The dsbackup create command takes the following options:

-d | --backupLocation {backup location}

Backup file-system path or URI for alternative storage mechanisms. File-system paths may be expressed as absolute or relative paths and are resolved relative to the current working directory when the tool is run in offline mode, or relative to the server instance directory when the tool is run in task mode. Read the documentation for further information regarding alternative backup storage mechanisms.

-n | --backendName {backendName}

The name of the backend to back up. Specify this option multiple times to backup multiple backends or skip this option to backup all the enabled backends that support backups.

--storageProperty {PROP:VALUE}

Assigns a value to a storage property where PROP is the name of the property and VALUE is the single value to be assigned. Specify the same property multiple times in order to assign more than one value to it.

dsbackup list

List the backups at the specified location.

Options

The dsbackup list command takes the following options:

-d | --backupLocation {backup location}

Location containing backups: file-system path or URI for alternative storage mechanisms. File-system paths may be expressed as absolute or relative paths and are resolved relative to the current working directory when the tool is run in offline mode, or relative to the server instance directory when the tool is run in task mode. Read the documentation for further information regarding alternative backup storage mechanisms.

--last

--backupId {backup ID}

The ID of the backup that should be deleted. Specify this option multiple times to purge multiple backups.

-d | --backupLocation {backup location}

Location containing backups: file-system path or URI for alternative storage mechanisms. File-system paths may be expressed as absolute or relative paths and are resolved relative to the current working directory when the tool is run in offline mode, or relative to the server instance directory when the tool is run in task mode. Read the documentation for further information regarding alternative backup storage mechanisms.

--force

Must be used with the '--olderThan' option, indicates that the last backup of each backend can be deleted if older than the provided duration. Default: false

--keepCount {number of backups}

The number of backups to keep per backend. Use this option to keep the n latest backups of each backend and delete the others. If n=0, all the backups will be removed.

-n | --backendName {backend name}
