Create an Offline Backup of the Data Store

Last update June 5, 2014

An offline backup requires that you stop and start the DSA services every time you take a backup.

To create an offline backup

  1. Login as the user dsa (on UNIX) or the administrator (on Windows).
  2. Stop the local DSA services using the following commands:
    • Windows
    dxserver stop dsaname
    su - dsa -c "dxserver stop dsaname"
    
    • Linux and UNIX
  3. Run the following command from the command line:
    dxdumpdb -f filename  dsaname
    
    • -f filename
      Specifies the file path and name of the LDIF file.
  4. Start the local DSA services using the following commands:
    • Windows
    dxserver start dsaname
    su - dsa -c "dxserver start dsaname"
    
    • Linux and UNIX
    The LDIF file is created at the specified path and the offline backup is successful.
