Two Cell Managers on set of tapes.

Hello all,

 

We have a COOP for disaster recovers in another state. We have the same version of Data Protector installed at both sites (Version 7.0). When we loaded the tapes from our current site to the COOP it was unable to read the tapes due to the encryption keys. We need to read the tapes for disaster recovery.

 

Any Ideas.

 

🙂

You will need to export the encryption keys from 1 cell manager then import them into the second.

 

omnikeytool -export CSVFile ExportOptions

omnikeytool -import CSVFile

This worked thanks,

 

But will setting up a MOM prevent us to have to keep importing new keys?

Hi,

 

yes MoM would prevent you to import the keys or the catalog. But make sure your MoM Server is "always on". Please keep in mind the the major goal of MoM is to share libraries and media between cells, so if one site is down (including library) there might no advantage for MoM.

 

Best regards

Daniel
