How to transfer your Metadefender Core v4 scan history database

In order to transfer your Metadefender Core v4 scan history database, please follow the instructions below:

  1. Stop the MetaDefender Core services on both machine (source and target) using the following commands

    net stop ometascan
    net stop ometascan-node
  2. Check the data folder under MetaDefender Core installation folder (<INSTALLATION DIRECTORY>\data, usually C:\Program Files\OPSWAT\MetaDefender Core\data) on the source machine. If there is any *.war or *.shm files that exists in this folder, this means that the services are still running. Please be sure to stop the services correctly (no running ometascan.exe and ometascan-node.exe processes are running)

  3. Copy the ometascan.db.sqlite file from the installation folder of the source machine to a safe place on your target machine

  4. Create a backup of the ometascan.db.sqlite file from the target machine

  5. Replace the ometascan.db.sqlite file from the target machine with the ometascan.db.sqlite file from the source machine

  6. Start the MetaDefender Core services using the following commands:

    net start ometascan
    net start ometascan-node
  7. Login to the web management interface of the target machine and check scan history tab.
