The Biotics 5 backup files are available for your download from Accellion.  See the Accessing Biotics 5 backups  solution for additional details and Automating download of nightly Biotics 5 backups.

The backup zip file will contain the following:

  • database dump of the entire deleted schema & log file, in your version of Oracle
  • database dump of the entire regular schema & log file, in your version of Oracle
  • tablespace_size.log
  • shapefiles or geodatabase of each of the managed layers
Biotics 5 uses Oracle 12c which includes a spatial component enabling your spatial data to be saved within the Oracle 12c database itself. That being said, you may not use Oracle 12c and so the database dumps must be made for the specific version of Oracle you're using so that the dump files can be successfully imported. Not all earlier versions of Oracle allow for spatial data and so the spatial data is provided as shapefiles/geodatabase (per your request), for your use.

Attached is a zip file containing a number of files to assist in importing the backup files. Where identified by the Oracle version, you only need to utilize the two files associated with the Oracle version you're using. Instructions are included in the PDF file.
