need is to replace my Sun server. And I have a lot's of custom config stuff,
custom scripts in /usr/OV/bin, oid_to_whatever,..a lot's of ARF add-ons. LRFs
mibExpr.conf....and a lot more.
think if I make OV.back.v7r1 and then use cp -r, that will do it. Is this what
NetView does during migration, or something else?
I was thinking to TAR C the whole thing and making up one big OV.tar.
Basically what I need is the best way of backing up the whole Netview and
restoring it on different box. of course with the same IP, SNMP
is the best way to do this, and what are the best practices?
This kind of
backup is mainly used when performing a migration. The update/migration
process looks for the existance of this directory and migrated the databases
and conf files and other contents. You could manually go through it and copy
parts back in but this would probably be tedious and potentially lead to
If your goal was to
backup the NetView databases, simply tar up the /usr/OV/databases/openview
directory and restore using pax (don't restore using tar). Or use the "Hot
Backup" feature introduced into v7.1 - refer to the 7.1 Release Notes for
description and steps to restore.
