Menu path: UMS Administrator > Backups

Default path to the UMS Administrator:

Linux: /opt/IGEL/RemoteManager/RMAdmin.sh
Windows: C:\Program Files\IGEL\RemoteManager\rmadmin\RMAdmin.exe

When a backup is restored, your current database status will be overwritten. It is strongly recommended that you create a backup of the current data before another backup is restored.

If you restore a database backup of an embedded database of a UMS version prior to 6.05, the superuser credentials are identical to the credentials of the database user. It is recommended to reset the superuser password.

For database backups of UMS versions 6.05 and higher, the superuser credentials have already been stored in the database backup and are taken from there.


To restore a saved backup, proceed as follows:

  1. Check under UMS Administrator > Backups if the Directory is the one that contains your backup; if not, click Change to change to the right directory.
  2. Select the desired backup from the backup list.
  3. Click on Restore.
    Once your data have been restored, the login data for the database will be displayed.
