Backup Cell Manager

Jump to solution

Hi all!

I'd like to ask some help!

I have to instal a patch on cell manager.

I dont think that it could cause critical failure, but i'd like to make a backup about config file-s, schedules...boot partition.

How could i do that? Just select all of mount point and run backup or is there any trick what i should do?

If i backup idb80 folder will it cause any db failure?

Our cell manager is RedHat, DP 9.06.

Thank you!

ok so this is a bundle of patches. Going from 9.06 to 9.08. yes that link is useful....

yes stop DP to get a good offline copy....

start DP then run an IDB backup to media.

leave DP running then run the patch install....

omnisetup.sh -bundleadd b908

is this an OS patch or a DP patch?

If its an OS patch then you should be ok. I would just do one of two things....

1. stop DP, get an offline copy to another partition

2. run an IDB backup to media just in case you need to recover

The only issues I've seen has related to windows security patches which can break postgresql....

DP patch! I got a link from support and i have to install a patch which will solve our problems...i hope!

So...

I should make a backup to tape (for recovery). After i have to stop all of dp services (omnisv- stop), install patch, restart os?

ok, I assume its a DPLNX patch. Which module ? CORE, CS ?

you shouldnt have a problem at all with the DP patch install but if you do, just do the two things I mentioned....

Good question!

No we have 9.06 and after installation it will be 9.08.... :)...core, i think!

Should i stop dp services?

" 1. stop DP, get an offline copy to another partition - (stop DP is stop services...)

2. run an IDB backup to media just in case you need to recover (if services stopped i cant run backup)

...or i dont understand something.

I find only this link about patch install...installation guide not help in this case

On Linux (and potentially other Unix platforms, I'm not sure) installing a patch to a client that also serves as an Installation Server (IS), the patch will only update the IS, not the component(s) the patch (bundle) is for and which might or might not be installed. As such, to complete the update, you'll have to run an "Upgrade.." from the client context menu. I'm not entirely sure if things change when the Unix client is in fact also the Cell Manager (CM component installed), but I'm generally stumbling upon this two-phase approach to upgrades given on Windows, the installer does always patch the IS as well as the installed components directly.

HTH,
