Restore archived analyses

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 analyses and samples only on the Ion Reporter™ Server on which the analyses and samples were originally archived.

You can also restore samples that are archived. For more information, see Restore archived samples from an external device to Ion Reporter Server.

  • The external storage device that contains archived analyses 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 analyses and samples in Ion Reporter™ Server.

    IMPORTANT! Change archivalMountPath=/tmp/ to archivalMountPath=/storage IP address/ in the ionreportermanager/server/server.properties 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/server.properties file as archivalMountPath.

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