Customize ignite server

Guru's,

I do not want my ignite server to save the ignite archives in the default location (/var/opt/ignite/).

I have created a 25GB LUN on the EVA and a new VG and LV (mount point=/ignite) for all 8 HPUX servers to store there ignite archives.

points to be awarded.

Hi Kehad,

As per the man page, you can specifiy the alternate archive directory with -a option in the commandline.

-a archive_server:archive_directories
Best wishes,

Hi Again,

Another possiblity is create a symbolic link between /ignite and /var/opt/ignite.
Best wishes,

Shalom,

See docs:
http://docs.hp.com/en/5992-1999/5992-1999.pdf

info library:
http://docs.hp.com/en/IUX/infolib.html

types of config files:
http://www.docs.hp.com/en/B2355-90153/apbs03.html

Per client configuration.
http://www.docs.hp.com/en/5992-5309/ch13s05.html

What you want to do is make /ignite an NFS share, by editing /etc/exports and sharing /ignite This will let you store make_net_recovery archives. By default nfs is configured and working though you will need to restart nfs.core and nfs.server to do a new share.

1 response, should meet your needs.

Re: Customize ignite server

Hello Kehad

I use a script like this one to create from a central point ignite archive on different servers, storing recovery info on an Ignite Server and storing image on a NFS server (Ognite server and NFS server can be the same ..)

#!/usr/bin/sh

[ $# -ne 2 ] && echo $0 CLIENT SERVER && exit 2

CLIENT=$1
SERVER=$2

echo "Remote launch of a recovery of $CLIENT on Ignite $SERVER"
remsh $CLIENT -n "/opt/ignite/bin/make_net_recovery -x inc_entire=vg00 -Avvvvv -s $SERVER -n 2 -a srvnfs:/Images_Ignite/${CLIENT}'" > /var/SAFE_
ADMIN/bckp_srv/logs_Ignite_${CLIENT}_`date +'%d%m%y-%H%M'`

CLIENT is the name of the server to backup
SERVER is the name of teh server holding recovery configs (you can do one week SEREVR1 and next SERVER2)
In the scrip srvnfs is the NSF server that will strore the images ..
