Backing Up WIN

From OpenSimulator

Jump to: navigation, search

This Posting now includes the more complete Automation System for OpenSimulator .

SYSTEMS TESTED ON Windows Vista, Windows-7 RC1, Server 2008 r1 (64bit)
MySql 5.1
This works will all system up to OpenSim f84da8e - r11604 (November 27,2009)

Prior to ANY UPGRADE / UPDATE you need to backup your system !

So here I present a BACKUP SCRIPT & RESTORE SCRIPT for the Console, along Batch File at the end to complete the process.  This should be used in conjunstion with the Smart Prestart WIN

This is Comprehensive, as it is better to have all types of backups in case OAR or others fail! (It Happens!)

 

You can copy these command scripts provided into your \BIN Folder.

Highly Recomended:
This System is designed to operated with the following SubStructures to isolate your Backups for Easy Retrieval and archiving.

SINGLE INSTANCE OF OPENSIM

c:\OpenSim <---- Base installation
c:\OpenSim\bin <---- the bin Folder
c:\OpenSim\BACKups <---- The Backup SubFolder Structure "base/root" (could be anywhere) !! Best to keep it OUT of \bin and it's subfolders
c:\OpenSim\BACKups\DB <---- for SqlLite Databases
c:\OpenSim\BACKups\DBsql <---- for MySql Databases
c:\OpenSim\BACKups\EXPORTS <---- ExportDirectories transfered here
c:\OpenSim\BACKups\INI <---- ALL Active INI Files from BIN and SubDirectories
c:\OpenSim\BACKups\LOGS <---- Log Files Archived Here for Review
c:\OpenSim\BACKups\OAR <---- for OAR Files
c:\OpenSim\BACKups\REGIONS <---- Region.XML or INI files copied here
c:\OpenSim\BACKups\TERRAINS <---- for r32 Terrain Files
c:\OpenSim\BACKups\TXT <---- TXT files used for console scripts copied here
c:\OpenSim\BACKups\XML2 <---- for XML2 Files

Note that EXPORTS are saved in \bin\exports by default, as defined in the OpenSim.ini

IF YOU HAVE MULTIPLE INSTANCES, CHANGE PATHING ACCORDINGLY

C:\OpenSim\INSTANCEa <---- Base installation
C:\OpenSim\INSTANCEa\bin <---- the bin Folder
C:\OpenSim\INSTANCEa\BACKups <---- The Backup SubFolder Structure "base/root" (could be anywhere) !! Best to keep it OUT of \bin and it's subfolders
C:\OpenSim\INSTANCEa\BACKups\DB <---- for SqlLite Databases
C:\OpenSim\INSTANCEa\BACKups\DBsql <---- for MySql Databases
C:\OpenSim\INSTANCEa\BACKups\EXPORTS <---- ExportDirectories transfered here
C:\OpenSim\INSTANCEa\BACKups\INI <---- ALL Active INI Files from BIN and SubDirectories
C:\OpenSim\INSTANCEa\BACKups\LOGS <---- Log Files Archived Here for Review
C:\OpenSim\INSTANCEa\BACKups\OAR <---- for OAR Files
C:\OpenSim\INSTANCEa\BACKups\REGIONS <---- Region.XML or INI files copied here
C:\OpenSim\INSTANCEa\BACKups\TERRAINS <---- for r32 Terrain Files
C:\OpenSim\INSTANCEa\BACKups\TXT <---- TXT files used for console scripts copied here
C:\OpenSim\INSTANCEa\BACKups\XML2 <---- for XML2 Files

SPECIAL NOTE!
The PRESTART Batch File in  Smart_Prestart_WIN will autobuild these structures & Perform several important functions

To Run this script, type the following in your console IF BACKUP.TXT is saved in your \bin folder.
command-script backup.txt

CONSOLE SCRIPT "BACKUP.TXT"


; Description: of BACKUP.TXT
; Creates a Full System Backup of all critical data
; Uses Command Console Functions not available otherwise
;
; Creates OAR, XML2, R32 (Region Terrain Files), and places them into the predefined folder structure.
; Modify the folder structure according to your installation
;
; NOTE The Export goes to the default as defined in opensim.ini it is NOT SUGGESTED that this be changed
;
; EXAMPLE is provided for a multi-region install. If you only have one region , or more adjust accordingly
; RENAME Region1, Region2 etc ... according to your region names
; 
; OAR FILES ! They do take a while depending on the volume of data on the region. The script will proceed
; and the commands will be queued and processed. IF you watch the destination folder, you will see teh OAR files grow 
; as they are being written out to the hard drive. Be Patient if you have a large installation.
; This will imapct system response to those In-World on the region being processed!
;
change region root
backup
export save-all
;
change region Region1
terrain save c:\OpenSim\BACKups\TERRAINS\Region1.r32
save xml2 c:\OpenSim\BACKups\XML2\Region1.xml
save oar c:\OpenSim\BACKups\OAR\Region1.oar
;
change region Region2
terrain save c:\OpenSim\BACKups\TERRAINS\Region2.r32
save xml2 c:\OpenSim\BACKups\XML2\Region2.xml
save oar c:\OpenSim\BACKups\OAR\Region2.oar
;
; REPEAT AS NECESSARY, edit "Region#" and change it to YOUR REGION NAME


RESTORATION:
To Run this script, type the following in your console IF RESTORE.TXT is saved in your \bin folder.
command-script restore.txt

CONSOLE SCRIPT "RESTORE.TXT"  


; FULL RESTORE PROCESS for OPENSIM CONSOLE
; Description:
; Uses Command Console Functions not available otherwise
;
; RESTORES OAR, R32 (Region Terrain Files), and places them into the Original Regions
; from the Backup\Folder structures as previously defined
; CAN be used to restore XML2 but commented out, there as last resort, IF needed
;
; EXAMPLE is provided for a multi-Region install. If you only have one Region , or more adjust accordingly
; RENAME Region1, Region2 etc ... according to your Region names
; 
; OAR FILES ! They do take a while depending on the volume of data on the Region. The script will proceed
; and the commands will be queued and processed. 
;
change region Region1
terrain load c:\OpenSim\BACKups\TERRAINS\Region1.r32
load oar c:\OpenSim\BACKups\OAR\Region1.oar
; load xml2 c:\OpenSim\BACKups\BACKups\XML2\Region1.xml
;
change region Region2
terrain load c:\OpenSim\BACKups\TERRAINS\Region2.r32
load oar c:\OpenSim\BACKups\OAR\Region2.oar
; load xml2 c:\OpenSim\BACKups\XML2\Region2.xml
;
; REPEAT AS NECESSARY, edit "Region#" and change it to YOUR REGION NAME 
;
; you will see messages on the console as it completes the queued tasks
;
