Restoring Database Backups

If you need to revert to an earlier version of your database, you can restore a database backup using Jamf Pro Server Tools.

Note:

You must stop Tomcat before you restore a database backup.

  1. Open the Jamf Pro Server Tools GUI by performing the following steps:
    1. Open a command terminal and enter the following but do not press Enter:
      java -jar
    2. Drag the Jamf Pro Server Tools .jar file into the window. This will add the .jar file path to the java -jar command.
    3. Press Enter.
  2. Click Tomcat Settings in the sidebar.
  3. Click Stop Tomcat.
  4. Click Backup and Restore in the sidebar.
  5. Click Restore Backup Now.
  6. Select the backup file that you want to restore, and click Open.
  7. Click Tomcat Settings in the sidebar.
  8. Click Start Tomcat.

The existing database is replaced with the database backup that you selected.
