How to export/import DLP policies and incident database in two different version of DLP without DLP upgrade
We have a client, who want to port (not upgrade) the DLP Enforce Sever 10.5 (Running over Windows 2003 32 bit machine) and its Oracle 10 g database (Two Tier implementation). As the Windows 2003 and Oracle 10 g is the not standard platform, the IT operations wants to build a new Enforce Server 11.5 over Red Hat Linux 64 bit machine. As this will be a new Enforce server 11.5 (11.0->11.1->11.5), how would one migrate the policies and old incident logs from the old Oracle 10 g database.
When you upgrade the DLP Enforce Server , the Symantec upgrade wizard handles the migration of the polices of other contents (Step 1) and migrates the incident log from Oracle 10.0 g to 11.g when you upgrade the Oracle Database (Step 2) . But our circumstances are different. We have to install a fresh copy of the DLP enforce Server 11.0 over a new hardware that support 64 bit Red Hat Linux and a new Oracle 11.0 g Oracle Server also on a new hardware hat support 64 bit Red Hat Linux.
How would one work about it. How would you export and import polices and incident database between different version of Enforce Server and Oracle Server database , running on two different OS platform . We have few ideas but all of them are crude and may risk loss of data.
Any suggestion !
