guide needed

Hello ,,

 

I have security issues in my HP-UX server and it has to be solved as soon as posible,

 

I need to upgrade the HP Data protector, and enable encrypted control communication services on cell server and
all clients in cell.

 

Also I have an issue of " SNMP Agent Default Community Name (public)" so I need to change the default community string.

 

can you guide me or provide me with the steps to do that, please ?

Re: guide needed

What version of Data Protector do you have now?

Depending on the current version, you may have a fairly easy set of steps, or an obsolete version (like 6.xx) may require an extensive set of steps to migrate the database to the new version. Do you have a support contract with HP for Data Protector? That is required in order to download the latest patches and versions.

 

SNMP is unfortunately enabled by default on HP-UX installs. If you are not using the SNMP service, edit all the files in /etc/rc.config.d that start with "SNMP" and set the enabling variables to =0

Re: guide needed

thank you Bill for your reply

 

HP Data Protector < A.06.20, and the security advice to apply the relevant patches referenced in HP's advisory (patch A.06.20
or higher). And enable encrypted control communication services. 

Yes I have HP contract. but is it safe to migration database to new version ?

if there is a way to upgrade to mentioned version to avoid the issue, it will be nice :)

Re: guide needed

All versions less than 7 are obsolete and unsupported:

You will have to login to the Data Protector support site using your HP SAID contract and download a supported version (7,8 or 9) where version 9 is recommended. There are many steps needed to convert the database file (DB40) into the new format. Basically, you export your DB40 file (will need more than 2x the space in a temp filesystem), then uninstall version 6.20, then install the new version. With 6.20, the recommendation is to the cell manager to 7, then patch to 7.03, then upgrade to 8.1 and finally to 9.

 

I've left out details since the exact steps depends on how many different cell managers, disk agents (clients), tape agents, etc that you have.
