Domain backup and recovery

Pentaho Metadata Editor

Part Number

Each domain can be saved to the Common Warehouse Metadata (CWM) repository with any name you like. The Save and Save As options are available from both the Pentaho Metadata Editor file menu and the toolbar. Each time a domain is saved to the repository, a recovery export file of the domain is saved to the file system, under the .pentaho-meta directory. This directory is typically located in the your home directory. The recovery file contains the last successfully saved state of the domain. The files are named recovery_[studio:domainname].xmi.

Domain restoration may be necessary if you need to revert to the last known good state of your domain in the event of repository errors or corruption. You can restore a domain to the last saved state by importing a recovery file.
