Ignite- UX Backup & Restoration

Can Ignite be used to restore the OS along with the Application software with the user defined configuration settings  ?

Yes, it can if the application is installed in VG00.

 

Once you have the system set up, application(s) installed, and users defined, create your Ignite backup.  Then if/when you restore from it everything will be restored as it was when the backup was taken.

We are trying to create a Golden Image using Ignite - UX.

Can this image be stored  in a Unified Storage & recovered from there over network in case of disaster?

Probably only if there is an Ignite server that can read that storage.

Do we need a Ignite Server if I burn the golden image on a DVD ?

Can the OS + Application be burnt on a single DVD ?

Ah, probably not.

It depends on the size of your app.  Of course you don't want to back up GBs of application data that way.

Not the Application Data, that will be done by the Backup Software. 

I wanted to create the image of the HP UX OS & installed application & use it for BMR. The only option I have is DVD (Golden Image) since i do not have another HP-UX server/Tape for network recovery.

 

Can multiple DVD's be created in case it doesn't fit in a Single DVD (I am looking for BMR) ?

I don't think Ignite and pax can handle it?  Check the documentation.

You can always split off the application part if too big.

Re: Ignite- UX Backup & Restoration

However, I would not do this.

The best solution would be a tape drive. An alternative could be a "clone" of the disk, depending on your system type and OS.

Hope this helps!
