HCL Workload Automation, Version 9.4

Backing up the database to offline storage

Run a frequent backup of the database to offline storage. Follow the instructions in the DB2® or Oracle documentation, as appropriate.

HCL Workload Automation is supplied with a utility that can be used for backup. It is called tws_inst_pull_info. Its primary use is as a tool to gather HCL Workload Automation information for HCL Software Support in the event of any problems arising. However, it can equally be used as a backup tool. It backs up the database (DB2 only), the configuration files and the log files.

This tool is described in HCL Workload Automation: Troubleshooting Guide and gives full details of what files are backed up, how to take a backup, and how to restore from one.
