OMABAKUP restore macro

Hello,

the documentation says
"SAS provides a macro called %OMABAKUP that creates correct backups of these files while minimizing disruptions in service. Backup and restore programs that use this macro are provided with your installation."
Which are those "backup and restore programs" ?*

Thanks,
metalray

Hello Metalray,

%OMABAKUP is a backup solution for metadata repositories in SAS BI solutions. You can find programs that use it in \Lev1\SASMeta\MetadataServer (the directory of the SASMeta server). The very program is in \SASFoundation\9.2\core\sasmacro. If you are not administrator of a BI plateform, you'll never have to use it.

Hi metalray,

The metadata server config directory for a SAS 9.2 installation (e.g. C:\SAS\EBIEDIEG\Lev1\SASMeta\MetadataServer) contains backupServer.sas and restoreServer.sas programs. These programs can be used to backup and restore metadata and make use of the use the %OMABAKUP macro.
