1. Stop Applications Manager 2. Revert Applications Manager database schema from backup 3. Replace Applications Manager HOME directory with backup HOME directory ($AW_HOME or %AW_HOME% in Windows) 4. If rolling back Remote Agents is required, replace Agent's HOME directory with backup HOME directory ($AW_HOME or %AW_HOME% in Windows)
While not necessary, running awinstall option 1 to check data is generally recommended after rollback is complete.
