Hello Aris Community,

i want to backup the Database of the Aris System. I know Backup "backup all" to save all Aris database. But what is the command to save only specific named database? For example: save only Database that begin with "DB"

I hope you can tell me the command for it!


Thank a lot!

Hi, Iklam.

There is no such functionality in ARIS Admintool. You can make a backup of a single database (backup [<database name>] <backup directory>) or all databases on the server.

You could use ARIS Server Administrator via batch mode and first "list" the databases. With the output, the list of databases on your ARIS server, you could filter what's needed for a backup and call ARISADM again for each database.

I've a very important question: is the critical when I make a backup and at the same time users are editing any model in database?

A backup of a database (or in ARIS 9 or ARIS 10 also a complete tenant backup) always gets the latest persistent data. But yet unsaved changes on a model by a user doesn't accept that. And of course, those data changes exist only in the running ARIS client product's memory, unless a user hits the save button. And only then that data will be part of the next backup routine.

We recommend to schedule automated backups, running e.g. over night.
