What is the way to get back to the previous mcserver.xml

Jump to solution

Hey Folks,

We have recently upgraded the MCS from 7.0.2 to 7.1 .

We have made certain changes in mcserver.xml in version 7.0.2 as per our environment requirement , but post up gradation the mcserver.xml has set to the default settings .

We don't keep any copy of mcserver.xml for the reference .

Is there any way to get the old configuration details ?

Thanks in advance .

Sam

The MCS database is flushed and backed up to the GSAN, typically once per hour plus as well as during each checkpoint operation.

You can get a list of these backups with the following command

avtar --backups --acnt=/MC_BACKUPS | less

Example:

avtar Info <7377>: Backups for /MC_BACKUPS as of 2012-01-05 11:18:37 GMT

    Date      Time    Seq       Label           Size     Plugin    Working directory         Targets

---------- -------- ----- ----------------- ---------- -------- --------------------- -------------------

2012-01-05 10:45:05  8723                       46599K Linux    /usr/local/avamar     var/mc/server_data

2012-01-05 08:45:06  8722                       46567K Linux    /usr/local/avamar     var/mc/server_data

2012-01-05 08:00:24  8721                       46562K Linux    /usr/local/avamar     var/mc/server_data

You can extract the MC flush to a directory to get a copy of the mcserver.xml using a command like this

avtar -x --path=/MC_BACKUPS --labelnum=8723 --target=/tmp/ var/mc/server_data/prefs/mcserver.xml

Do you have another grid configured the same way?
