xln File restore problems.

xln File restore problems.

I am trying to restore some xln files. I had to append the .tar.gz extension to them since I did not see them when i clicked on view/restore data and after doing that it gives me the following error

The final status for your restore is shown below.

THEPID is: 15617
backup: 7: Restore/Information list has been denied. This file is not an Avaya Call Processing backup image.
Performing ERROR RECOVERY, please wait.....

Avaya told me the xln files should go to the /ect/opt/defty
folder but using the anonymous login i dont see such a directory. can someone please advise me where i am going


RE: xln File restore problems.

/ect NOT

Correct directory is below:

both files are identical except for the name.

if your xln files came from a backup

you will need to do "tar xBfz backup_xxx_xln.tar.gz" to extract the xln1 file.

Make backup of current xln1 and xln2
cp /etc/opt/defty/xln1 /etc/opt/defty/xln1.bak
cp /etc/opt/defty/xln2 /etc/opt/defty/xln2.bak

cp xln1 /etc/opt/defty/xln1
cp /etc/opt/defty/xln1 /etc/opt/defty/xln2

reset system 4 and CM will load the translations
