OpManager Backup and Restore for build 9450 and above

Question: How to do Backup and Restore for Builds above 9540 

Solution: The backup and restore commands have been changed from build 9450  to 10100 and again from 10200 for different database types, go to <OpManager-Home\bin\backup>  folder and follow the commands below:

Commands for builds above 9450 to 10100:


Arguments: mode, destination, exclude, threads

Mode         :To select type of data (Performance and configuration or only configuration).

Example      : -mode all                (to backup both performance and configuration data)
                    -mode configdata     (only  to backup configuration data)

Destination : Specify the location to save the file ( optional ) , without this OpManager stores the  backed up file
                     OpManagerhome/backup folder.

Example       : destination c:\opmanagerbackup

Exclude       :To exclude Plug-in database backups.

Example1      : -exclude netflow            (Excludes Netflow Plug-in  database backup)
Example2      : -exclude ncm                 (Excludes NCM Plug-in database backup)

       : ( To speed up the backup process , default count is 10 , can be increased up to 15)

Example         : -threads 12
