- Run the transaction log in the backup directory into the database. This is done with the
command with the
- Run the current transaction log (or its mirror) into the database. For example on Unix, if the current backup is located in
/mnt/disk2/certifier.logis the mirror of the current transaction log, the following commands will restore the database:
cd /usr/local/certifier/sybase cp /mnt/disk1/backup/current/certifier.db ./certifier.db dbeng7 -a /mnt/disk1/backup/current/certifier.log ./certifier.db dbeng7 -a /mnt/disk2/certifier.log ./certifier.db
- After this operation has been successfully completed, SSH Tectia Certifier can be restarted using the
If private keys used by one of the SSH Tectia Certifier server installations have been lost, a new certificate must be enrolled for that server before it can be used. This probably requires some operator activity to set up a pre-shared secret for the server. If there are no functioning servers in the system, SSH Tectia Certifier must be started in insecure configuration mode first. See Section Starting and Stopping SSH Tectia Certifier Manually.
