I'd like to know which is the best method to perform a backup of CA Identity Suite.
I'd like to backup the entire VM, if it's possible.
Thank in advance
Are you referring to
CA Identity Suite 14.2 - Virtual Appliance if so please see the release notes
It provides the following steps for backup:
To backup the Virtual Appliance configurations and data, run the following command: backupVapp
To restore the Virtual Appliance configurations and data to a replacement server, run the following command: restoreVapp
thanks for your reply.
I'm using IDsuite 14.1 and the commands you wrote are not available.
I'm looking for a method to perform a full backup of the vapp. We did it with our backup software, but restore fails, so i'm wondering if there are some procedures or special requirement that have to be satisfied.
The backup procedure is mentioned as a part of the upgrade procedure in the guide.
1. Full database backup for all databases/schemas used by Identity Manager, Identity Governance and Identity Portal.A database backup is mandatory for rollback!
2. Identity Manager environment (IME) backup using the Identity Manager Management console? Environments? identityEnv ? Export
3. Any custom files on the file-system (these normally reside on /opt/CA/VirtualAppliance/custom/<product name>)
4. Virtual Machine Snapshot
