Quantum Commander lets administrators restore the facility to a previous date and time using the database files created from a system backup.
To perform a system restore:
- Double-click the Primary QSPC1 entry on the left of the Quantum Commander screen.
- Select Tools from the top of the Quantum Commander screen.
- Select Restore.
- From the Open screen, select the name of the folder in which the system backup files are stored.
To locate the folder, use the down arrow next to the Look In field, Up One Level icon , Desktop icon , List icon, or Details icon.
- Select Open from the bottom of the screen.
Quantum restores the system using the backup files and notifies you when the restore is complete. The system is restored to its status as of the date and time of the most recent backup.
IMPORTANT: A system restore will restore all of the system’s maintenance configuration including Facility #, QSPC1 #, IP address, subnet address, gateway, Multicast IP, Inter-facility Multicast IP, Type, and Unit. If any of these settings are already programmed into the card, they will be overwritten with the restored maintenance information.
NOTE: To enable the Restore option, a QSPC1 must first be selected via a double-click from the left of the screen. If a QSPC1 number is not selected via a double-click, the Restore option remains grayed out and is not selectable from the Tools menu.
NOTE: The system must be reset to finalize the restore. To reset the system, click the RESET button on the System Parameters screen. This will then reset the entire facility.
