As EEM 8.4 no longer uses Ingres, specific steps are needed to perform a backup of the EEM.
Performing a backup in EEM 8.4 is a two step process.
Steps to backup CA EEM server files and folders:
You must backup the following files
Event Information (required if EEM has any events configured)
Steps to backup EEM Data stored in CA Directory
In EEM 8.4 the data is stored in a memory mapped db file. The file's default location is C:\Program Files\CA\eTrust Directory\dxserver\data\iTechPoz-XXXXXXXXXXX (XXX is the server name where EEM is installed)
The DXSERVER command dxdumpdb should be used to take a backup of the data stored in the directory
Note: The DX_HOME environment variable should be set in the environment variables to run the command from any location. If DX_HOME is not set then the dxdumpdb can only run from C:\Program Files\CA\eTrust Directory\dxserver\bin folder.
