Import and Export Server Metadata¶
The Denodo Aracne administration tool provides the possibility of exporting and importing the server metadata.
- Export indexes and index schema metainformation (Export Configuration link). This is especially useful for migration and backup purposes. It generates a compressed Zip file, including all the required information to restore the server metadata (it also includes the server configuration file). ARN-Indexer also provides scripts to schedule the running of automatic backup copies (see appendix Use of the Import/Export Scripts for Backup).
- Import server configuration, indexes and index schemas from a file containing the metadata of a server (Import Configuration link). It is possible to specify if the user wants to overwrite existing elements with the ones included in the imported file, when there are elements in the server with the same names. This is especially useful for migration purposes. ARN-Indexer also provides scripts for importing the metadata (see appendix Use of the Import/Export Scripts for Backup).
