Backing Up the Existing Signalware Configuration
To back up the existing Signalware 9 configuration:
Retrieve your Signalware LSN number, which can be used to track the license.
To view your Signalware LSN number, execute:
$ cat ULCM_Signalware_9_license.lic | grep LSN
The system responds with the LSN number. Record it.
Back up your license file (/etc/ULCM_Signalware_9_license.lic) by copying it to a safe location.
The Signalware license is tied to the workstation by a unique host identification code, so if you use a different chassis as the new server, you must obtain a new or reissued license for that chassis.
You cannot physically transfer license files from one chassis to another, but you can save and restore them to a new installation on the same chassis.
Convert any rc (recently changed) files to db files using the MML BACKUP-NODE command.
Make sure that Signalware is running.
Change directories to $OMNI_HOME/bin and run the swmml utility.
From within swmml run BACKUP-NODE.
In another window, look in $OMNI_HOME/CE NAME/dffile for a file named archive.xxx that is time stamped with the date and time you ran the BACKUP-NODE command.
Type exit to close swmml.
To learn more about BACKUP-NODE, at a system prompt, execute:
Use the DFcat command to save the contents of the following files to a safe place such as a directory on the new server, a network file system, or a CD.
These files are in the $OMNI_HOME/CENAME/dffile directory:
archive.NODENAME. $SHM .date
db.nodename.mtp. $SHM .pri
db.nodename.sccp. $SHM .pri
Where $SHM represents the value of the environment variable.
$OMNI_HOME/bin/DFcat cestart. $SHM >SAFE_PLACE/cestart. $SHM
