We took a little different approach to our backups as we are a 24x7 shop. We
built a seperate filesystem for backups large enough to hold the NetView and
Ciscoworks applications. Every weeknight a script runs that shutsdown the two
applications. It then runs an  ovmapcount and an ovtopofix before  doing a tar
disk to disk of the application files. It starts the applications back up, and
then does a backup the new tar files to tape.  This leaves the application
unavailable for about 15 minutes a day.

On the weekends, we do a mksysb.

Dear all

To summarize the ideas till now...
- mksysb / sysback
- tar (online or offline)
- /usr/OV/install/tools/nvp.v5r1

Still I do see the problem, that the last EUI-settings will be lost. Does
anyone know, how to restart NetView-GUI on a PC-box running XWinPro (of
course in the right CDE-Window with the right maps and workspaces open ...)

I have to make sure that -since our TEC isn't configured properly yet- the
GUI is up and running every morning.

With kind regards / mit freundlichen Gruessen

Kuffer:
        Or, you could use the good 'ol mksysb and put that in cron, stopping
and
starting services via script that is defined in cron. But remember to make
the backup a system-bootable backup- and to remember to put cycle your
tapes.  We are running 5.1.1 on aix 4.2.1

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.

Hi all

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
advance)
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?
