Restore archived samples from an external device to Ion Reporter™ Server

This information applies only to Ion Reporter™ Server.

If needed, you can restore the analyses that you have archived in Ion Reporter™ Software.

IMPORTANT! Ensure that you restore archived samples only on the Ion Reporter™ Server on which the samples were originally archived.

  • The external storage device that contains archived samples must be mounted to your Ion Reporter™ Server.

  • If you have a new Ion Reporter™ Server or upgrade from a previous version, you must specify a storage location for archiving samples and analyses in Ion Reporter™ Server.

    IMPORTANT! Change archivalMountPath=/tmp/ to archivalMountPath=/storage IP address/ in the ionreportermanager/server/ file, then restart the Tomcat server.

    To check the data that you archived, go to the storage location of the archived data, which is set up in the /share/apps/IR/ionreportermanager/server/ file as archivalMountPath.

    If you have questions about the Tomcat server, contact your Field Support Engineer or Field Bioinformatics Support representative.
