Appendix B: Restoring Files


Last Updated: September 7, 2010

After you create the backup configuration files for the Cisco Video Management and Storage module, you can restore the files as needed. Restoring is done in offline mode, which terminates all activity. You should consider doing the restore when the system is least active.

Use the show backup server command to locate the backup ID of the file that you want to restore.

SUMMARY STEPS

1. show backup server

2. offline

3. restore id backupid category {all | configuration | data | VSMS | VSOM}

4. reload

5. show backup history
