We have an environment which is going to upgrade windows from 32bit to 64bit OS and in process i've to re-install Siteminder 12.5 on a system which already has Siteminder 12.0 .I was thinking if i could create a backup of my current siteminder & policy server configuration for future use?While searching for it i stumbled upon the link :-
This upgrade guide states a few points for consideration. Anyone would please help me with the backup process?I need to have backup of all the settings if possible.
I understand you are planning to upgrade your environment to 12.5 .
Refer the below link , where End of Service CA SiteMinder r12.5 is on March 31, 2017.
Consider upgrading to latest versions.
Hi Leo ,
Thanks for the input,i did go through the document and found my case matching parallel upgrade i.e. from 12.0 to upper versions.I would appreciate it if you may help me understanding the procedure of taking backup for using it in upgrade for any version.Regards,Hridyesh

Also perform a backup of policy store via Database backup/restore functionality(eg ldif export/odbc backup/ file system backup etc). In case if we are unable to import your policy store export via SiteMinder import tools.
