Additional Information

Always perform an offline backup of SSdb after upgrading the CA Spectrum.


 ( $SPECROOT is the directory where SPECTRUM is installed)

 

1. Stop the SpectroSERVER process.
      cd $SPECROOT/bin/
      ./stopSS.pl

 

2. Change the working directory to $SPECROOT/SS
      cd $SPECROOT/SS/

  

3. Execute the "SSdbsave" command to save a database, use the following   command syntax:

     ../SS-Tools/SSdbsave -cm <filename>

   (Where <filename> = name of database to be saved)
    example
      ../SS-Tools/SSdbsave -cm  ../SS-DB-Backup/db_20210401_manualsave.SSdb

 

   Using the -cm will backup the catalog and the models. This is synonymous with an online Spectrum backup.

 

4. The resulting filename will be appended with .SSdb
