I want to know is there a automated way of ARIS Report Script backup.

I understand with the use of Admin tool you can backup the DB's and you can put the command in a batch command and run it in scheduler. Is it possible to do the same for Report Script?

Would really like to hear from others.

Hi Abhijit!

The report script files has it's own directory on server side:

<ARIS install dir>\server\templates\scriptservice

You can write a script to automatic copy the content of this directory. To restore the script files, you have to stop the ARIS server and copy the files back to this location. After all start the server again.

Hi Jens,

Thanks for your reply.

However this is not the preferred solution. I know you can copy content of a folder into another folder by a one line batch file. However in this case you can not transfer the content to a different instance easily. For example you copied the script folder content and paste it in a different location. Now if someone creates any script between two backups and if you try to put that in case of any failure you will not see it in report library.

Also if you copy this content in different servers you will not be able to see it correctly.

Thanks however for your help.

Hello Abhijit,

I understand your requirements are aiming at a configuration management solution like it was discussed here

We are about to use subversion for the scripts and business publisher / IT-Inventory configuration.

If you want copy and then merge file repositories from different sources a batch file running xcopy or robocopy (on board since Win2003 Server) would do the job but you would need to control the procedure yourself.

Regards, Martin
