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

Yes

No
