  1. Click Tools > Backup.

    The Backup dialog box displays.

  2. In the Select model to back up list, select one or more models that you want to backup.

    The related model database, site database and schema, and catalog database and schema are automatically included in the backup.

  3. Click Calculate Size to determine the size of the selected items for backup. The size displays in the Size column.

    If you are backing up an Oracle database model, this calculation could take several minutes.

  4. In the Select folder and name for backup configuration file, specify the destination folder for the .bcf and log file.

    • If you are running Oracle on a Linux computer, the .bcf file must be saved to a Windows-based computer.

    • Users, as well as accounts used as logon for Oracle services, must have write permissions to the shared folder in which the .bcf file is stored. Before proceeding, verify that the share, with the appropriate permissions, exists.

  5. In the Save Database Backup Files in box, specify the destination folder for the database backup files.

    • When backing up Oracle databases, you must specify a location that is shared.

    • When using an Oracle Linux environment, the database backup location must be on the Linux computer where the Oracle service is running. The account used to run the Oracle service must have write permission to the backup location. Linux is a case-sensitive environment. You must use the correct case when typing the path for the database backup in the database backup utility. You must also type the Linux folder location. Browse (...) is not available for navigating to Linux folder locations.

  6. Click OK.

    During the backup process, a progress indicator at the bottom of the dialog box displays the files that the software currently is accessing. The software generates a log file that documents the results of the process.

    To review the results of the backup in the backup log file, click Yes in the Project Management message box.

  7. Click Cancel to close the Backup dialog box.

  • You can restore a model into an existing site database. First, select the backup configuration file, and then locate the database backup files. Next, select the model. You can review the databases involved in the list at the bottom of the dialog box. Click Restore.

  • To send the backup files to another location, create a .zip file that contains all of the files.

  • If files that you have backed up exist in the destination folder, a message displays to determine if you want to proceed. Click Yes to continue and overwrite the files in that folder. Click No to cancel the back up.
