Sysback is a life saver here. You get a bootable tape that can restore all
your filesystems and data. If you've got sysback, I'd be happy to post a
script that will run the backup (by volume group), including bringing down
Netview EUIs/daemons and CiscoWorks daemons. We run full weekly backups with
this utility via cron.

Subject: NV backup on regular basis
runing NetView 5.1.2 on AIX 4.3.2
I'm about to set up the regular backup strategy for our NetView-database.
I'd like to have this done automatically via a scheduling program. As I see
at the moment, there are two possible ways
1) using /usr/OV/install/tools/nvp.v5r1 (price is to stop all EUIs in
2) ovstop, backing up manually, ovstart (price is to acknowledge all the
daemon-down/up again messages, goodie is user's settings are not lost)
How do other admins handle this? Any ideas, suggestions?
With kind regards / mit freundlichen Gruessen
