Backing up and restoring Veritas Operations Manager Enterprise Server 5.0

You can use the Veritas Operations Manager Enterprise Server backup script to back up your database files, important configuration files, and Cognos report definitions.

To back up the Veritas Operations Manager Enterprise Server

  1. On the Enterprise Server, open an operating system console and log in as a user with administrator-level privileges.

  2. Change to the following directory:

    C:\Program Files\Veritas\VRTSsfmh\bin>

  3. Run the following script for backing up your configuration:

    # perl.exe vomadm vomesbackup [--validate] --backup directoryname

    where

    --validate validates the database backup files, and directoryname is the name of the directory you want to store the backup files in.

    For example: perl.exe vomadm vomesbackup --backup C:\vomesbackup

Restoring the Veritas Operations Manager Enterprise Server involves the following:

  • Restoring the database backup

  • Restoring the report definitions

To restore the database backup

  1. On the Enterprise Server, open an operating system console and log in as a user with administrator-level privileges.

  2. Change to the following directory:

    C:\Program Files\Veritas\VRTSsfmh\bin>

  3. Stop the database service. Enter the following:

    # perl.exe vomadm vomessc --stop Database

  4. Go to the the database directory. For example, enter the following:

    # cd C:\ProgramData\Symantec\VRTSvomer\db

  5. Back up the database file. Enter the following commands:

    # move vomer.db vomer.db.old

    # move vomer_data vomer_data.old

    # move vomer_index vomer_index.old

    # move vomer.log vomer.log.old

  6. Copy the database files from the backup directory to database directory. For example, enter the following:

    # cd C:\ProgramData\Symantec\VRTSvomer\db

    # copy backup_directory\db\vomer

  7. Start the database service. Enter the following:

    cd C:\Program Files\Veritas\VRTSsfmh\bin>

    # perl.exe vomadm vomessc --start Database

To restore the report definition

  1. Locate the zip file from the backup directory. Make sure the extension is .zip.

  2. Import the zip file into the installdir/Cognos/deployment directory. Enter the following:

    # copy backup_directory\cognos\er-5.0-reportsbkp.zip installdir\Cognos\deployment

  3. In the target environment, open IBM Cognos Connection by clicking the Manage Reports icon on the Veritas Operations Manager Enterprise Server Home page.

  4. In the upper-right corner, click Launch IBM Cognos Administration.

  5. On the Configuration tab, click Content Administration.

  6. On the toolbar, click the New Import button. You see the New Import wizard.

  7. In the Deployment archive box, click the deployment archive that you want to import.

  8. Click Next.

  9. Type a unique name, an optional description, and a screen tip for the deployment specification.

  10. Select the folder where you want to save the deployment specification, and click Next.

  11. Review the summary information and click Next.

  12. Do one of the following:

    • To run the report once (now or later), click Save and run once and click Finish. Specify the time and date for the run, and click Run. Review the run time and click OK.

    • To schedule a recurring time, click Save and schedule and then click Finish. Then, select frequency and start and end dates, and click OK.

When you run the import, you have the option of upgrading the deployment specification. If you choose not to upgrade the deployment specification at this time, you can upgrade it later.
