DREINITIAL/HostDetails
Type

Boolean

Default

False

Description

Specifies that the restoration should use a backup directory based on a specific host/port combination.

When using DREBACKUP you can set HostDetails to true, so that the backup will be written to a subdirectory named with the host and ACI port of the engine. You can then restore these backups using a DREINITIAL action with HostDetails set to true.This allows you to restore a series of engines under a Distributed Index Handler (DIH) from their own backup.

For example:

If the backup is sent to a DIH on the localhost using the following command:

http://localhost:12611/DREBACKUP?X:\backup\&HostDetails=true

Then each of the DIH's child servers write backups to the following directories:

X:\backup\enginehostN-engineACIPORTN

Where enginehostN is the hostname for child engine N, and where engineACIPORTN is its ACI port. To restore the child engines using this backup, you would then use the following command:

http://localhost:12611/DREINITIAL?X:\backup\&HostDetails=true

Each child engine will then restore from its own backup.

Example

HostDetails=true
