The ixbar file is the most important piece of a cold restore. When OnBar is to issue a cold restore it scans the ixbar server file and decides which backups it needs to get from that storage manager. The information stored in this file is also kept in the sysutils database. Onbar will use that database if it is called to perform a cold restore. The name of the ixbar file is in the format of ixbar.SERVERNUM .

Each time a backup is done, Onbar will put information about that backup in this file (as well as in the sysutils database). This file should not be modified by the users. Once again, if this file becomes corrupted, modified, or removed, online may not be able to find the backups it needs to perform a restore. Backups of logical logs are also recorded here.
