Full instance restore on 8.x

Take the scenario where we have a fourth db not part of the
original install and are installing this to a new system.
We now need a fourth app server - not provided by the
original install.

Im not sure if you can/cannot restore one db instance to
another machine and if those ports are common or not since
I think some of the ports are stored in the db as well as
the config files. During a test I restored one db to
another instance (test to pilot) - and it didn't work error
msg received shows its looking to a different port than the
app server is running on.

Imagine if I called up Vantage and said "we need a new
database called live3 restored from an existing backup".

That full process is what's needed.

Is there any documentation around on the specific steps in vantage
8.x to restore a database backup to a full operating instance?

seems the steps may be the following but Im not sure, and hence want
to see if theres a doc available.
1. restore db - have that done.
2. create db in progress explorer (ok, I can follow the format for an
existing db)
3. create app server instances (I can copy - but want to make sure
this is done correctly)
4. create config file to point to new ports
5. point db to proper app server ports?

The assumption needs to be in terms of disaster recovery:
1. a db backup is available - use it.
2. software install is available - install
3. make everything work


Thanks!
Adam
Nothing in Vantage that I know of yet. Would be useful for us as well.However, curious if you do a full server backup weekly, monthly and cycle tapes off-site?.

Ya, I didn't see anything in Vantage - didn't think there would be as
its a catch 22 since essentially Im looking for the procedures that
the Vantage install team would follow to bring up a db from a backup
file into full capability. In order to have something in Vantage it
would prob require vantage to already be up and running. I'm sure
I'll figure it out.. just would prefer to know the 'proper' procedure
before I start hacking things together especially if totally
unnecessary : )

Im just in planning phase now and Vantage isn't to pilot yet, but I
plan on doing offsite backups for vantage as well as running a
virtual server instance all ready to go for production environment in
case of a 'disaster'. So in DR, I'll create a new instance, restore
to it. So offsite backups will contain virtual server backup file and
vantage db where virtual server instance is setup with an old copy of
the db and I can just restore a newer one and be good to go.

Restoring a db back-up is very straight forward if you are talking about taking a backup and restoring it to a server with the same version Progress and Vantage installed on it.

Open Proenv, type prompt and hit enter.
Change directories to the directory where the target db is/will be stored.
type prorest mfgsys backup.1
where mfgsys is then name of the target database and backup.1 is the name of your db backup.
it enter and wait until it says it is complete.
Log in and go.

Just for a straight restore, yes, not however if it is a new instance being restored from a backup to a non-default instance name or to a new instance.
That procedure below I believe simply expands the files, but does nothing with integrating into progress (db won't appear in explorer) and creating appservers, thats what I need to do.
Take an instance named "prod1" (for ex) and create everything from there on out after doing prorest.....

Restoring a db back-up is very straight forward if you are talking about taking a backup and restoring it to a server with the same version Progress and Vantage installed on it.

Open Proenv, type prompt and hit enter.
Change directories to the directory where the target db is/will be stored.
type prorest mfgsys backup.1
where mfgsys is then name of the target database and backup.1 is the name of your db backup.

Yes.. that would work if I was doing a full restore.. but Im not looking for that (although I do appreciate the suggestion!)
Restoring doesnt tell me what the requirements are to understand how to bring an entire working instance up from scratch and how everything fits together. Im a developer, and as such like extremely technical information.... helps me to understand the whole process more. If we have a custom instance that I want to bring up on a development machine to play with (in addition to the others.. or bring it up as a new instance name), or a disaster recovery site, or an additional database at an office on the opposite coast, I want to understand the full procedure - all of the requirements and procedures to bring everything up.. etc. Also helps me to understand to know which component may be failing in any given circumstance (a month of working on the system and although I like it.. still receive several errors every day).

You want to know how to take a working database and make it work on
another machine?

just trying to understand the question.....

development machine to play with (in addition to the others.. or
bring it up as a new instance name), or a disaster recovery site, or
an additional database at an office on the opposite coast, I want to
understand the full procedure - all of the requirements and
procedures to bring everything up.. etc. Also helps me to understand
to know which component may be failing in any given circumstance (a
month of working on the system and although I like it.. still receive
several errors every day).

Why wouldn't you use the installation media to install Progress and
Vantage, then use prorest to restore your back-up. That process would
take half a day max. Installation creates all of your appservers,
containers etc.

Just for a straight restore, yes, not however if it is a new instance
being restored from a backup to a non-default instance name or to a new
instance.
That procedure below I believe simply expands the files, but does
nothing with integrating into progress (db won't appear in explorer) and
creating appservers, thats what I need to do.
Take an instance named "prod1" (for ex) and create everything from there
on out after doing prorest.....

Restoring a db back-up is very straight forward if you are talking about
taking a backup and restoring it to a server with the same version
Progress and Vantage installed on it.

Open Proenv, type prompt and hit enter.
Change directories to the directory where the target db is/will be
stored.
type prorest mfgsys backup.1
where mfgsys is then name of the target database and backup.1 is the
name of your db backup.
it enter and wait until it says it is complete.
Log in and go.

Todd

Ya, I didn't see anything in Vantage - didn't think there would be as
its a catch 22 since essentially Im looking for the procedures that
the Vantage install team would follow to bring up a db from a backup
file into full capability. In order to have something in Vantage it
would prob require vantage to already be up and running. I'm sure
I'll figure it out.. just would prefer to know the 'proper' procedure
before I start hacking things together especially if totally
unnecessary : )

Im just in planning phase now and Vantage isn't to pilot yet, but I
plan on doing offsite backups for vantage as well as running a
virtual server instance all ready to go for production environment in
case of a 'disaster'. So in DR, I'll create a new instance, restore
to it. So offsite backups will contain virtual server backup file and
vantage db where virtual server instance is setup with an old copy of
the db and I can just restore a newer one and be good to go.
