Afer i installed the "Cell Manager" i was able to use the omnidbutil utility.
Apparently i choose to install "client" which will install the Data Protector manager, but isn't a complete cell manager.

 

Thanks for the anwsers...

'omnidbutil' is one of the files installed when you Install the Cell Manager.  My guess is that you don't have the Cell Manager installed on the system where you are trying to run 'omnidbutil'

 

You can check this 2 different ways on the server where you are trying to run 'omnidbutil'

 

   - In Windows Explorer, check to see if the file exists

             Program Files -> Omniback -> bin -> bsm

 

   - Go to Services, and check to see if there is a service running 'Data Protector CRS'.  This is the service that runs Data Protector.  If you don't see this service, then you don't have a Cell Manager installed on this server

I suspect that Data Protector Cell Manager was installed on this system at one time, but was probably removed using Add/Remove Programs, which has been proven to sometimes leave some file remnants behind

 

You will need to reinstall the Data Protector Cell Manager.  You don't state the Windows Version, so I will give instructions for both Windows 2003 and 2008

 

Make copies of

 

            Program Files -> Omniback -> db40            Windows 2003

            Program Files -> Omniback -> Config -> Server

or

            Program Data -> Omniback -> db40            Windows 2008

            Program Data -> Omniback -> Config -> Server

 

and put them in a safe place. Remove any remaning Data Protector folders

 

         Program Files -> Omniback               Windows 2003

or

        Program Files -> Omniback                Windows 2008

        Program Data -> Omniback

 

Install Data Protector from your installation media.  Once it is up and running, stop Data Protector, check for the existance of 'omnidbutil' and see that a CRS service is running; rename

 

           Program Files -> Omniback -> db40            Windows 2003

            Program Files -> Omniback -> Config -> Server

or

            Program Data -> Omniback -> db40            Windows 2008

            Program Data -> Omniback -> Config -> Server

 

and put the saved version in their place
