Restoring a saved configuration

A previously saved configuration (or any configuration recorded in the history) can be restored, thereby backing out of the results of an unsuccessful upgrade. Restoring a saved configuration does not delete the files for feature and plug-in versions from the local computer; it merely ignores them and acts as it did when they were not present. To restore a saved configuration to be the current configuration:

  1. Select command link Help > Software Updates > Manage Configuration to open the Manage Configuration dialog.
  2. In the Product Configuration view, click the Installation History icon and select the desired configuration. Click Restore.
  3. Click Yes when asked to exit and restart the Workbench for the changes to take effect.
  4. Expand the Current Configuration (and children) to confirm that the current configuration now matches the configuration saved earlier.
