OUD Requires an Absolute Path to the Backup File for Restoring
Last updated on MAY 07, 2017
Applies to:Oracle Unified Directory - Version 18.104.22.168.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
In OUD, the "restore" command requires a path to the directory that contains the backup archive, specified with the -d or --backupDirectory flags. The command further requires that the specified path is absolute. Using relative paths will result in an error:
[...]severity=SEVERE_ERROR msg=An error occurred while attempting to examine the set of backups contained in backup directory [...]: No backup directory descriptor file was found
The requirement to specify absolute paths should be documented, as the undocumented requirement can cause some confusion for customers.
