Backup and Restore

Available in Nexus Repository OSS and Nexus Repository Pro

Nexus Repository Manager lets you utilize a scheduled task to aid with backing up your repository manager. Along with your backup procedure you can configure your repository manager to save the OrientDB databases that store your component metadata and system configurations. 

You can configure this task to export settings and metadata from the underlying OrientDB databases. When running the task it:

  • stores the databases to a new location when configured.
  • generates a snapshot of the databases for you to back up, along with the other parts of the repository manager.
  • suspends access to the database until the backup is complete.

It's recommended you develop a backup procedure and provide a backup location for your Nexus Repository Manager. Finally, you must synchronize the database exports with other parts of the repository manager that you wish to back up.

This section shows you how to configure and execute the tasks as well as to learn how to and recover the exported databases of your Nexus Repository Manager.
