    ePO backup\recovery problem

      Hi, everyone.


      I try to backup and recover the ePO server. I use this manual - https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB66616. And when I run command Rundll32.exe ahsetup.dll RunDllGenCerts <eposervername> <console HTTPS port> <admin username> <password> <"installdir\Apache2\conf\ssl.crt"> I get "Failed to process the secure communication request (error=401) " in the ahsetup.log. I use correct <admin username> and <password>.

          It is (unusually for windows) a completely case-sensitive command I think, so check that carefully.

          Also be sure to correctly blank the previous \conf\ssl.crt *folder* as described:


          • Rename SSL.CRT folder to SSL.CRT.OLD and manually create an empty folder named SSL.CRT on the same path, otherwise the setup will fail to create a new Cert.


          and of course the ePO application server service needs to be running first.

            ePO application server service is running, ssl.crt folder is empty and I use correct username\password - the same as I used to log on to ePO console.

              Hi skamil, if you are looking for a way to do a backup and restore (DR) for ePO, I would suggest Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery 2012 or 2010.  BESR will allow you to setup a schedule for snapshots of everything.  I use BESR for going from P2V, V2P, Disaster Recovery, moving from one hardware platform to another etc.  Just a suggestion.  BESR creates images.   You ccan use the image to bring down to the server if needed.


              Thanks, have a great day.
