Restoring a backup copy of the Monitor database

You can replace the Monitor database with a backup copy.


You must have a valid backup copy of the Monitor database.

  1. Stop the Monitor, if it is running.

  2. From your backup directory, copy the samonitor.db database file and samonitor.log transaction log file.

  3. Paste these files into the directory where the current Monitor database and transaction log file are located. When prompted, overwrite the existing files.

    The default locations of the version 16.0 Monitor database files are listed in the following table:
