About this task
To restore the database backup file, you must place the file in the following directory:
C:\Program Data\Johnson Controls\MetasysIII\Database Files\PreUpgrade Archives
When you restore an archive database, you can keep the supervisory devices at their current release.
To restore an archive database:
- On the Tools menu, select Database.
Select Restore Backup. The Restore Archive wizard appears.
You can restore a backup of an archive database file only when it is not in use. Archive database files that are in use are locked and unavailable.
- Select the database and click Restore. If the archive currently exists, the Confirm Delete and Restore message appears.
- Click Yes to Delete the current archive with the name selected in Step 1 and replace it with the most recent backup of that archive.
Open the restored archive if desired. The version now available in the Open Archive wizard is the last version that was backed up.
Note: Do not rename the backup file.
