Problem

A Forum reader recently asked:

“Does anyone know what the trick is to running the ambkup.sh backup tool? I tried using the info in the docs to no avail (see below) There is no solid info on how to actually enter some of the data needed. I get this error:”

Backing up configuration...
**** Error *************** Error *************** Error ****
AM#201001001: Failed to back configuration store.

And here’s the response from Gert Vanden Bergh …

Solution

1. Create a file called defbkparm.sh (or edit it if it already exists):

IP_ADDRESS="xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx"
IP_PORT="636"
DS_ADMIN_DN="cn=admin,o=novell"
DS_ADMIN_DN_DOT="cn=admin.o=novell"
BKUP_DIR="/root"
BKUP_FILE="servername_$(date +%Y%m%d_%H%M)"
CERT_ENC_PWD="xxxxxxx"
CERT_ENC_PWD_VERIFY="xxxxxx"
EDIR_SERVER_DN="cn=servername,o=novell"
EDIR_SERVER_DN_DOT="CN=servername.O=novell"
EDIR_TREE="servername_tree"
EDIR_CA="${EDIR_TREE} CA"
LOG_FILE="/root/nidp_backup_$(date +%Y%m%d_%H%M).log"

2. Replace all “servername” with the exact name of your server (case-sensitive).

3. Run the ambkup.sh backup tool.
