Merging Archived Jobs in the CommServe Database

You can retrieve the archived records of old backup jobs by merging the records back to the CommServe database at any given time.

About This Task

When you archive the backup job records by using the ArchiveLongTermMetadata script, a folder containing the job list and media list is created for each client. The script also creates a clientname_MergeBatch.bat file for importing the archived backup job records back to the CommServe database. The batch file is located under the corresponding client folder in the output location specified during archiving.

To merge archived jobs in the CommServe database

  • At the command line, go to the client folder location and enter the merge batch file name.


    For example, c:\clientfolders\client1\client1_MergeBatch.bat

The archived job records are imported to the CommServe database.
