7 Recovering From a Console Failure : 7.1 Enabling Console Backups with the EDB Ark Script

For the console backup script to function properly, the console (GlassFish) must be running as the ppcd user, and the ppcd user must have sufficient privileges to read and execute the backup script. The .pgpass file (used for backup authentication) is located in the ppcd user’s home directory (/var/ppcd).
Use the parameters in the PPCD Console DB Backup properties section of the ppcd.properties file to specify backup instructions for the Ark console. By default, the backup properties are commented out; when you uncomment the parameters, the backup service will start when the console application is deployed.
By default, the console.db.backup.script parameter specifies the name and location of the script provided with EDB Ark. If you choose to provide your own backup script, use the parameter to specify the name and location. Please note that you must ensure that the script can be read and executed by the ppcd user.
Use the console.db.backup.dir parameter to specify the directory to which backups will be written. The ppcd user must have sufficient privileges to write to the specified directory.
