18.0 Backing Up the JDBC Driver

You can use Designer for Identity Manager or iManager to create an XML file of the driver. The file contains all of the information that you entered into the driver during configuration. If the driver becomes corrupted, you can restore the configuration information by importing the exported file.

IMPORTANT:If the driver has been deleted, all of the associations on the objects are purged. When you import the XML file, the migration process creates new associations.

Not all server-specific information stored on the driver is contained in the XML file. Make sure that this information is documented through the Document Generation process in Designer. See Documenting Projects in the Designer 2.1 for Identity Manager 3.5.1 guide.
