DP8.1 upgrade

We just upgraded from DP 8  to DP 8.1.  Now to get into the GUI it is asking for a user name and password.  Is this something we need to request from HP or is there a default out there?

Re: DP8.1 upgrade


1. Stop the services.
2. Create a new certificate using the following command:

"Program Files\OmniBack\bin\perl.exe" "\Program Files\Omniback\bin\" -server_id <full qualified DNS/host name> -user_id HPDP -store_password <keystorePassword> -server_san ip:<IP address>

3. Start the services.
4. Try to access the GUI again.

The keystorePassword can be found at:

Re: DP8.1 upgrade



if not working, name resolution might be the root cause. Check if cell server can be resolved properly, short, fqdn, reverse. After that try a repair installation or just generate a new certificate.

Re: DP8.1 upgrade
