Protecting OCUM 6.x


In 5.x you can backup the database as archive or snapshot.

How do you protect v6.x?

Hi Magus,

Please refer Oncommand Unified Manager 6.0 Adminstration Guide (page 16)

The virtual appliance backup and restore process overview

The backup and restore model for Unified Manager is to capture and restore an image of the full

virtual application.

The following tasks enable you to complete a backup of the virtual appliance:

1. Taking a VMware snapshot of the Unified Manager virtual appliance.

2. Making a NetApp Snapshot copy on the datastore to capture the VMware snapshot.

If the datastore is not hosted on a Data ONTAP storage system, follow the storage vendor

guidelines to create a backup of the VMware snapshot.

3. Replicating the NetApp Snapshot copy or snapshot equivalent to alternate storage.

4. Deleting the VMware snapshot.

You should implement a backup schedule using these tasks to ensure that the Unified Manager

virtual appliance is protected if issues arise.

To restore the VM, you can use the backup copy you created to restore the VM to the backup pointin-

time state.

hope this helps
