ROAD for Oracle VM - Oracle VM Manager Availability Protection Demonstration

Thank you for watching this ROAD for Oracle VM - Availability Protection Demonstration.

We will walk through recovering Oracle VM Manager on a warm standby without interrupting the running Oracle VM servers or virtual machines.

First we will authenticate into warm standby's Oracle VM Manager to show its in a clean first login state.  

To start the recovery, ssh to the warm standby and select the restore_manager command with its associated runbook.

Next, enter the admin password to start the automated recovery process.

The restore_manager command runs through a total of 15 automated steps to recover the source Oracle VM Manager configurations on the warm standby. 
Step 1: Discovers the Oracle VM servers
Step 2: Discovers the file server
Step 3: Discovers the block storage array
Step 4: Applies the Admin Server settings for file server
Step 5: Applies the Admin Server settings for block storage array
Step 6: Applies the file server Refresh Server settings
Step 7: Validates and refreshes the Storage array 
Step 8: Refreshes the file server
Step 9: Refreshes Filesystems
Step 10: Adds the Oracle VM servers to the repositories
Step 11: Refreshes the storage layer
Step 12: Refreshed the Oracle VM servers
Step 13: Applies the NTP settings
Step 14 Applies the YUM server setings
Step 15: Does a final refresh to ensure that Oracle VM Manager is error free
 
Once Step 15 completes the source Oracle VM Manager configurations will have been be applied to the warm standby.

Next, we run the restore_nice_names.sh command to restore the source Oracle VM Manager tags and user-friendly names. User-friendly names replace the default machine generated names for server pools, storage, network, virtual machine, template and assembly objects.
 
Once the save_nice_names.sh command completes, the source Oracle VM Manager user-friendly names will have been applied, and the recovery process is complete.

Next, We will log in to the recovered Oracle VM Manager and confirm that all the objects are there without a single error. 

Thank you again for watching this ROAD for Oracle VM Availability Protection Demonstration.
