Backup and restore utilities are scripts that are run from the command line, and they allow you to back up and restore your Administration Console. An additional script allows you to export your configuration so Novell® Support can help diagnose possible configuration problems.
IMPORTANT:You cannot restore data from a previous version of Access Manager to a new version. It is recommended that you create a new configuration backup whenever you upgrade to a newer version of Access Manager.
Before running these scripts, verify the following:
You have root access.
You have changed the directory to /opt/novell/devman/bin.
