[oxhe-announce] Update on Context Restore Knowledgebase Documentation

Dear Customers of Open-Xchange,

we would like to inform you that the knowledgebase article http://oxpedia.org/wiki/index.php?title=ContextRestore_Bundle was missing the "--hex-blob" parameter of the mysqldump command.

This leads to a problem with the uuid columns in the MySQL database, which makes those dumps unusable for the contextrestore module. Therefore backups need to be created with this parameter to ensure
that they can be used with the contextrestore tool later on. It's highly recommended to adjust any existing backup job.

If you need to restore from an old database dump which wasn’t created with this new parameter, there is a way to convert it to the correct format. Please see
http://oxpedia.org/wiki/index.php?title=ContextRestore_Bundle#Old_dump_without_--hex-blob for the exact steps.

Additionally this is also documented in the Open-Xchange Support Database: http://sdb.open-xchange.com/node/360

Best regards,
Your Open-Xchange Team
