Saving Logical Domains Manager Configuration Data

Before you reinstall the operating system on the control domain, save the Logical Domains Manager configuration data. This data includes the autosave configuration information in the /var/share/ldomsmanager/autosave-autosave-name directories.


Note - Each autosave directory includes a timestamp for the last SP configuration update for the related SP configuration. If you restore the autosave files, the timestamp might be out of sync. In this case, the restored autosave configurations are shown in their previous state, either [newer] or up to date.

For more information about autosave configurations, see Managing SP Configurations.

For information about methods you can use to recover the domains you configured, see Available Configuration Recovery Methods.

How to Save Logical Domains Manager Configuration Data on the Control Domain

You can use the tar or cpio command to save the entire contents of the directories.

  • Save the Logical Domains Manager configuration data in the /var/share/ldomsmanager directory.

    The following example shows how to use the tar command to create the configdata.tar archive file:

    primary# cd /
    primary# tar -cvpf configdata.tar var/share/ldomsmanager/
