Re: Need to know the ignite server details from ignite client

Check the file: /var/opt/ignite/recovery/previews

The server will be: iux_server=some_host

The archive (the backup data) may be stored on another server so: archive_host=some_host may be different. But you would backup and restore from the iux_server system.

 

This is no guarentee however. Though not an easy design to manage, your network may have several ignite servers setup. You can use the ignite program on eachserver to list the systems which have been configured. If you uset the DISPLAY variable, you'll get a simple (and fast) text menu screen that shows the clients.
