Restoring a system in 800xA v6.0.3.
There is no restore functionality in System Configuration Console (SCC).
Restoring a system using the Configuration Wizard breaks the functionality of the SCC and the Configure System icon in SCC disappears.
you can refer document 2PAA111694-600_F_en_System_800xA_5.1_to_6.0_Upgrade.pdf
Figure 2. High level Workflow for Online Upgrade
General workflow is :
Run NPT on all the nodes
Create system on Primary aspect Server node
Plan system as it is in System backup
Exclude all the nodes except Primary Aspect Server
deploy Primary aspect server
export SCC aspects from Plant explorer -> Admin structure -> System
delete the system
Restore system backup
import SCC aspects
and now Open SCC
and include other nodes and deploy
For more details refer the mentioned document and section
Hope this will help you
Irrespective of All system versions system deletion and restoration will be done only through config wizrd of primary aspect server ensuring licenses loaded as applicable.
As part of xa6.0(till 6.0.3 ru3) onwords system will be deployed centrally for all nodes from Scc node ensure NPT has runs in all nodes with agent should show green in nodes from Scc else deploy not happens.
To restore backup from eng node to production system in the order:
If both eng and production node names are same then
Run NPT,load license,restore system and open Scc and add other nodes and deploy other nodes.
If eng and production system node names are different.
Run NPT in all nodes,load license,create system and add all nodes,deploy system by excluding other nodes (include only Prias),export system configuration and state aspects from admin str,delete system from config wizard,restart,restore system and delete old configuration & state aspects from admin str,import new configuration aspects and now open Scc and check nodes are ok with afent showing connected , now include all nodes and deploy system
Note:if agent showing disconnected then not possible to deploy that node.
