2.2 Backing Up the Access Manager Configuration

  1. On the primary Administration Console, change to the utility directory.

    Linux: /opt/novell/devman/bin

    Windows Server 2003: \Program Files\Novell\bin

    Windows Server 2008: \Program Files (x86)\Novell\bin

  2. Run the following command:

    Linux: ./ambkup.sh

    Windows: ambkup.bat

  3. Enter the Access Manager administration password.

  4. Re-enter the password for verification.

  5. Specify a path for where you want the backup files stored. Press Enter to use the default location.

  6. (Windows) Specify the name for the ZIP file.

  7. Enter a password for encrypting and decrypting private keys, then re-enter it for verification.

    You must use the same password for both backup and restore.

  8. Press Enter.

The backup script creates a ZIP file containing several files, including the certificate information. This file contains the following:

The trusted roots are backed up in both the LDIF file and the ZIP file. They are added to the ZIP file so that the ZIP file has the complete certificate-related configuration.

IMPORTANT:The backup utility prompts you for a location to store the backup file, so that it is not erased if you uninstall the product. The default location for Linux is /root/nambkup and for Windows it is C:/nambkup.
