|Issue||There is a requirement to migrate RSA Authentication Manager 6.1.2 production data from a once supported UNIX environment to an RSA Authentication Manager 8.1 deployment.|
The database dump program (sddump) is failing to locate a file called sdcfgval and does not generate a database dump file.
|Cause||A possible cause would be the sddump program has no system variables set to provide it access to the authentication manager instance.|
|Resolution||UNIX based environments usually require system variables set to ensure the success of the program being used to access the authentication manager 6.1.2 databases (server & log). RSA Authentication Manager 6.1.2 on a UNIX platform has a file called admenv located in the ACEUTILS folder that reveals the environment (system) variables that can be used to create a shell script for running the authentication manager programs (such as the database dump program; sddump).|
Example; taken from an installed authentication manager 6.1.2 primary instance on Red Hat 3 Update 8 Enterprise Linux
[root@redhat3u8P utils]# ./admenv
NOTE: The authentication manager 6.1.2 default installation folder on a once supported UNIX platform was /opt/ace and ACEUTILS refers to the default /opt/ace/utils folder location.
Steps to create the shell script to dump the server database
|Notes||IMPORTANT : Only 6.1.2 authentication manager database dumps are supported for migrating data into an RSA Authentication Manager 8.1 deployment.|
