Hi @Technical_guy,

I have moved your post to a new topic. Now back to your question. I would do the following. assuming this is a Windows Cell Manager using the default paths.

  • Stop the services using the omnisv stop command
  • Perform a copy (or create an archive) of C:\ProgramData\Omniback, this is your IDB
  • Perform a copy (or create an archive) of C:\Program Files\Omniback, this is just the binaries and scripts you may have placed there, it is not required, but may help
  • Take a note of the service user used to execute the Data Protector services

If something breaks move the files back (on the new system which has the same hostname, IP, service user which was used originally) and perform an installation on top of the existing database. Make sure the service user has full access rights on Omniback\server\db80 directory structure, has the user permissions as found on https://docs.microfocus.com/itom/Data_Protector:2018.11/Install/pre_install/pre_install_tasks#WindowsInstallationServerinnon-clustermode and the symlinks have been re-created (see mklink on https://docs.microfocus.com/itom/Data_Protector:2018.11/Admin/OmniBack_Database/Task/HOW_Restoring_OBDB#Offlinerestore).

Hi @Technical_guy ,

You need to copy all directories as found in the following command. Copy each directory to one target directory on the USB HDD.

C:\>set | findstr DP_
DP_DATA_DIR=C:\ProgramData\OmniBack\
DP_HOME_DIR=C:\Program Files\OmniBack\
DP_SDATA_DIR=C:\ProgramData\OmniBack\

In my exmaple I have to copy C:\ProgramData\OmniBack to X:\DATA\Omniback and C:\Program Files\OmniBack to X:\HOME\Omniback if we assume that X:\ is my USB drive. Make sure the USB drive is using NTFS.
