    NSM - Lost Custom signature

    slarocque

      Hi,

       

      A coworker of mine by accident has deleted a custom signature set.  The client is using NSM 7.5.5.7.12.

       

      If, I created a back-up of the config tables would the custome signature backed up as well?

       

      I currently have the config tables backup in a *.jar and *.dmp files.

       

      Thank you.

          Hello, and welcome to the community!

           

          A good way to test whether this would work for you would be to do a full backup as your NSM currently exists (using dbadmin). After ensuring that your new backup is valid, try restoring the old backup to see if your custom signature sets are restored with it. I just did a test in my lab on NSM 8.1.7.5 and my custom signatures were restored properly.

           

          Thanks!

            Thank you for taking the time to reply to me.  That worked!!  the backup of the "config tables" had all the custom signatures in there!!

             

            Thank you!
