New omnidbutil command options not visible after upgrading DP

Hello,

 

I upgraded our DP cell server to DP 7.03 IB 107 as requested in this article:

https://h20564.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c04636829&lang=en-uk&cc=uk

 

I want to use the new omnidbutil -set_idb_password command as described here:

http://h20565.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?sp4ts.oid=326828&docId=emr_na-c04702422&lang=en-uk&cc=uk&docLocale=en_US

 

However the new command option is not visible for me when I run omnidbutil help and running it takes me back to the help page. It looks like the new option was not enabled.

 

Cell server - Win 2008R2

what's the exact synthax you are using and omnidbutil version (omnidbutil -version) ?

Re: New omnidbutil command options not visible after upgrading DP

I was recently instructed by HP Support to back out the Build 107 patches because there are so many problems with it.

My immediate problem at the time was trying to omndbutil -readdb.

 

Since I backed out the patches system performance has been much better.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.

>omnidbutil -version
HP Data Protector A.07.00: OMNIDBUTIL, internal build 107, built on 31. maaliskuuta 2015, 11:08

I am trying to run the "omnidbutil -set_idb_password" command and descriebed in the links in my original post. It is not listed when I run the "-help" option and directly writing it just brings back the "-help" output (wrong syntax).

Thanks again!

Re: New omnidbutil command options not visible after upgrading DP

Thanks for the reply Jeremy. It is a bit weird that on the official website there is this "NOTICE: The information in this Security Bulletin should be acted upon as soon as possible." but they recommend to the customers to not do it. I will try to contact HP support directly before I move on with patching other environments.
