Re: Best practices Ignite

A more detailed question would be better, I think.

What is meant by "auto ignite"?

Meanwhile see

Hope this helps!

Re: Best practices Ignite

you can put a cron job on client to run make_net_recovery during off load timings.
Additionally you can send result of cron to you mail id.

Re: Best practices Ignite

script for "automatic" by putting under the crontab


# more os_make_tape_recovery.sh


/opt/ignite/bin/make_tape_recovery -x inc_entire=vg00 -Iv -a /dev/rmt/0mn
> /opt/sysadminScripts/osbackup.log.`date +%d%m%Y` 2>&1
mt -f /dev/rmt/0mn rewind;
mt -f /dev/rmt/0mn off;

please take note /dev/rmt/0mn -> tape drive path

/opt/sysadminScripts/ -> location of my Os_backup_script -> its depends to can copy or create the script as per your preferred loaction


Thanks,
Johnson

Re: Best practices Ignite

Shalom,

Best practice is to use cron to run your Ignite job, make_tape_recovery or make_net_recovery

If using tape, make sure a tape is in the drive before the appointed hour.

It is also good to have a DR test where you actually restore a system from Ignite. Its not a good solution if you are not sure it will work.

Re: Best practices Ignite

automatic Ignite backup "by tapes"

as mentioned by <> you must make sure load tape before firing of the ignite backup.

hence had experience "/" file system has reached about "98 %" due to one of our operator forgot to load the tapes resulted in create very large file under /dev/rmt/

Automatic Ignite "for more than 2 Servers"
Best practice to setup Ignite Server

Re: Best practices Ignite

>>in this case is used make_net_recovery<<

Yes , You are right,

make_net_recovery -> for Ignite Server

make_tape_recovery --> for Ignite backup via tape

if you have software contract linked with your itrc account , search for software recovery handbook (ignite ux ) , this will give all info needed to setup and manage ignite ux

Re: Best practices Ignite

Hello Eli.
from personal experience schedule your ignite backup in crontab, I have that way, ignite backup jobs run during bussiness off hours.

for example, I have this in a script.
/opt/ignite/bin/make_net_recovery -s mx45rt -A -n 3 -P s -x inc_entire=vg00 -x exclude=/SAParchives -x exclude=/usrtemporal

hope this helps.

Re: Best practices Ignite

Hello Eli.
I run them once a month.

But according to best practices you should also run them before you modify kernel and install a patch.

Also I you setup a ignite server/client environment, ignite images take up as lot of space for example, I have a mixed environment of hpux 11.11 and 11.23 servers.

images for 11.11 server are about 4 to 5 GB

images for 11.23 are from 8 to 12 GB.

so take this into account

as recommended im only backing up vg00 (only O.S. related info), if you have anithing not related to O.S. in vg00 exclude like the example I given you above.

If you need anything else, let me know.


have a great day
