Re: How to take ignite backup

Do you want to take the backup to tape or to ignite server?

However, manuals are on http://www.hp.com/go/ignite-UX

Please answer the question first.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

>how much space require for ignite backup.

 

Hopefully you are only backing up vg00 and not all of the user data filesystems.

I would recommend you to use HP Ignite-UX Guided Troubleshooting from the below web link to know about most common Ignite-UX Configurations.

This guide has the configuration steps to configure Ignite-UX server, Network and tape backup/recovery

Sorry for the delay,

 

Thanks for your reply,

 

I would like to take ignite backup on the same machine.

 

Please guide me how to do that.

Re: How to take ignite backup

So you need a tape drive, do you already have one?


Hope this helps!

Re: How to take ignite backup

Hi,

 

As posted earlier also by others there are two options to take Ignite one is on tape and other is on Network that will land on Ignite server.

 

By Ignite u can take backup of vg00 which can be restored in case ur OS got crashed.

 

U cannot take Ignite of one server on same server, as its creates the copy of VG00. U need to connect tape drive to same server or in network then only u can take Ignite of the server.

 

Hope this clear ur query.

>> U cannot take Ignite of one server on same server, as its creates the copy of VG00

It might be possible, but what to do with it?

How to restore?

Burn a lot of DVDs each time?

Better to use a tape!

Hope this helps!

Re: How to take ignite backup

Taking Ignite of same server on same server will be useless. 

 

That cant be used is system gets crashed.
