Archive samples to an external storage device
You can archive samples from an Ion Reporter™ Server to an external storage device to increase disk space. Archived samples can be restored only to the Ion Reporter™ Server from which they were originally archived. This procedure cannot be used to transfer samples between multiple servers.
Available options include:
Torrent Storage™ NAS (Network Attached Server) device (Network Attached Server)—For more information, see https://www.thermofisher.com/order/catalog/product/A32198
DataSafe™ Solution—For more information, see https://www.thermofisher.com/order/catalog/product/A32633
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 /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.
