The server_conf_backup command creates a zip file that the server_conf_restore utility later uses to restore the metadata for a Broker Server. When the server_conf_backup command creates the backup zip file, it captures the absolute paths to the configuration data file(s).
This utility can be used while Broker Server is running.
This utility can only be used with Broker Servers that use separate storage sessions. If you have a combined queue-storage session, you must use the file system's copy command as described on Backing Up a Combined Storage Configuration or use the export and import feature to back up and restore the Broker Server's metadata. For more information about import and export, see Managing Client Groups.
For information about using this command, see Backing Up a Separate Storage Configuration.
