System Administrator Guide for VSP E990 and VSP G130, G/F350, G/F370, G/F700, G/F900

Part Number

Before replacing an SVP, you must make a backup copy of the Device Manager - Storage Navigator configuration files on the SVP. You can then use the backup copy to restore the configuration file if it becomes necessary, or to configure a replacement SVP if one fails.

The following configuration items can be backed up and restored. Before you create the backup, ensure that the settings are correct.

  • Device Manager - Storage Navigator environment parameters
  • Authentication server connection settings
  • Key management server connection settings
  • Display settings (table width) for each Device Manager - Storage Navigator user
  • Device Manager - Storage Navigator login warning messages
  • Device Manager - Storage Navigator task information
  • SMI-S application settings
  • SSL certification for HTTPS/SMI-S/RMI
  • You must have the Storage Administrator (Initial Configuration) role to perform this task.
  • You must be logged into the SVP.
  1. Stop all services running on the storage system.
  2. Open a command prompt window with administrator permissions.
  3. In the folder where the .bat file is located, execute the following command:
    C:\MAPP\wk\Supervisor\MappIniSet>MappBackup.bat absolute-path-of-backup-file
    • The backup file must be in .tgz format.
    • A space is required between .bat file and the path to the backup file.
  4. A completion message displays. Click any key to continue.
  5. Close the command prompt window.
    • If you do not specify a folder in which to save the file, the system automatically creates a default file in the following location:


      where yyyyMMddHHmmss is the year, month, date, and time that the file was created.

    • The backup file is compressed and uses the .tgz format. Use a tool that supports tar and gzip to extract the data from the .tgz file.
  6. Save the backup file to another computer or external memory device such as a USB flash memory or hard drive.
