How to Upload a Dump File

If you need information on how to create a dump file, read this page.

Zipping the dump file using 7zip

  • Choose a file name for the zipped archive file you are going to upload. Your archive file name should contain the date and the ticket number. For example, if your ticket number was 100 and today’s date was March 12, 2016, your archive file name would be:
     Ticket100-20160312-dump.7z
  • Zip the dump file. This example assumes your dump file is still on your dump partition and that your dump partition is drive letter o: and the archive file name is as described above.
    7za a Ticket100-20160312-dump.7z o:\dumpdata.001

Uploading the dump file

  • If using a command line FTP client, be sure to start this process from the directory in which the 7z archive file is located.
  • Upload the 7z archive file to the Arca Noae FTP server. The login credentials are:Username: incoming@arcanoae.com
    Password: <Your email address>
    Note that this is a write-only login. You will not be able to read files or do directory listings.
