Backup/Restore of the AccuRev Repository

An accurev command (backup) and a maintain command (restore) are involved in the scheme for backing up and restoring the AccuRev repository with a minimum of disruption to development activities.

The accurev backup command can be executed while the AccuRev Server is running and development activities are ongoing. For more information, see Backing up the repository.

At any time after you've executed an accurev backup command and verified that it has completed successfully, you can restore the repository to its state at the time the backup command was started using maintain restore. This is an offline procedure — the AccuRev Server must be stopped when you run it. This procedure is documented in Restoring the Repository.
