Backing up HDvM - SN configuration files

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

Part Number

You can make backup copies of the various Device Manager - Storage Navigator (HDvM - SN) configuration files by downloading them to a folder that you specify. You can then use the backup configuration files to restore one or more of the files to the existing SVP if necessary or to configure a new SVP.

  • You must have the Storage Administrator (Initial Configuration) role to perform this task.
  • You must be logged in to the SVP.
  1. Stop all storage services running on the SVP.
  2. Open a command prompt window with administrator permissions.
  3. In the folder in which the .bat file is located, execute the following command:
    C:\MAPP\wk\Supervisor\MappIniSet>MappBackup.bat absolute-path-of-backup-file

    Make sure to include the first eight (8) digits of the SVP firmware version (for example, 93050100) when you specify the file name. If you need to restore a configuration file, you must use a backup file that was created with the same SVP firmware version as the target SVP.

    • The backup file must be in .tgz format. Use a tool that supports tar and gzip to extract the data from the .tgz file.
    • A space is required between the .bat file and the path to the backup file.

      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.

  4. When the completion message is displayed, click any key to continue.
  5. Close the command prompt window.
  6. Save the backup file to another computer or to an external memory device such as a USB flash drive.
