NPrinting repository restore from backup

Hi,

I am trying to do a restore of a backup i made in NPrinting 17.1.2.

I am following the steps posted here: Backup and restore of a repository ‒ Qlik NPrinting

The backup goes fine, it generates a .zip file with the repository backup but I cannot get it to restore the backup.

I get the following error message: "Some arguments could not be parsed".

I type the following command from an elevated command prompt: Qlik.Nprinting.Manager.exe restore -f C:\\NP_Backup.zip -p "C:\Program Files\NPrintingServer\pgsql\bin" --pg-password MYSECRETPASSWORD

Anyone tried to do a restore and got it to work?

BR

Daniel

Yes,

Your syntax is invalid.

Use:

Qlik.Nprinting.Manager.exe restore -f C:\NPrintingBackups\NP_Backup.zip -p "C:\Program Files\NPrintingServer\pgsql\bin" --pg-password secretPassword


Make sure you stop  the three services outlined in the tutorial before you attempt to restore as well.

superuser password used to install NPrinting = secretPassword
