7.4 Change the Backup and Restore Path for the Oracle VM Manager Database

Oracle VM Manager automatically performs backups of the Oracle VM Manager database. By default, these backups are located in /u01/app/oracle/mysql/dbbackup. If you have network attached storage available, it is strongly recommended that you change the default path for these backups to use a mount point on an external device, particularly if you can make use of some form of RAID to further protect this data.

The path where database backups are stored is defined in /etc/sysconfig/ovmm.

Please refer to Backing up the MySQL Database Repository in the Oracle VM Administrator's Guide for more information on this parameter and on the backup and restore process in general.
