Issue/Introduction

How can users export the calendars and other artifacts in DE (ESP dSeries Workload Automation)?

Environment

Release : 12.x

Component : Workload Automation DE 

Resolution

Use the "imexutil" utility to export or backup the artifacts (applications, events, agents, JavaScripts etc.)

The "imexutil" utility is installed <DE_install>/bin

Example :

Linux/UNIX

cd /opt/CA/DE_R12/bin

/imexutil.sh -h localhost -p 7500 -u schedmaster -w schedmaster_pass -c 'exportagent -outdir /opt/backup/agent'

 

Windows

cd C:\Program Files\CA\WorkloadAutomation_R12_2\bin

imexutil.bat -h servername -p 7500 -u schedmaster -w schedmaster_pass -c "exportapplication -outdir c:\backup\application"

 

NOTE: Put in actual schedmaster password after -w in above command.  Create the output directory for each artifact before exporting.

For each artifact, append artifact type with export:

exportcalendar

exportevent

and so on.

-------------------

Automation

The above command can be put in a script and executed as a job from dSeries

Create a file with all the export commands (commands.txt):

(Change second sechemaster in first line with actual password)

user schedmaster schedmaster
exportapplication -outdir /opt/backup/application
exportcalendar -outdir /opt/backup/calendars
exportagent -outdir /opt/CA/backup/agent
exportagentgrp -outdir /opt/backup/agentgrp
exportalert -outdir /opt/backup/alert
exportconnectionprofile -outdir /opt/backup/connectionprofile
exportalert -outdir /opt/backup/event
exportgroup -outdir /opt/backup/group
exportjavascript -outdir /opt/backup/javascript
exportreportdesign -outdir /opt/backup/reportdesign
exportresource -outdir /opt/backup/resource
exportsecurityprofile -outdir /opt/backup/securityprofile
exportvarctx -outdir /opt/backup/varctx

 

Next setup a job in DE, specify default Agent.  Agent that installs on DE server.

 

 

Schedule the job to run as per requirements.
