In a Spectrum EEM integration scenario , you need to backup the CA Directory on EEM at regular intervals. This is done using the dxdumpdb command. You might see the following error while running this command:
C:\Program Files (x86)\CA\Directory\dxserver\bin>dxdumpdb -f d:\eembackup -z
20131014.220044.062 WARNING: Ignoring IPv6 loopback address for localhost
20131014.220044.078 WARNING: Ignoring IPv6 loopback address for localhost
Error: Syntax Error: Line 1 in C:\Program Files
Expected a '}'
This solution talks about how to resolve this error and proceed with the backup.
In this scenario the EEM version used is 8.4 SP 4 on Win2k8R2 . Make sure the below steps are followed to perform a successful backup.
- On the EEM server , go to C:\Program Files(x86)\CA\Directory\dxserver\config\knowledge directory and open the iTechPoz-NCDWCAMISA0001.dxc file
- Make sure there are no duplicates entries listed in this file
- Once done check the version of the EEM. Use the above command only if your EEM version is 8.4.
- Incase the EEM version is 8.4 SP4 , run the dxdumpdb command like this
C:\Program Files (x86)\CA\Directory\dxserver\bin>dxdumpdb -f d:\eembackup iTechPoz-ncdwcamisa0001
This should backup your CA directory in EEM without any issues.
Note: Make sure you run the backup command as stated in respective EEM docset.
