    Doing clean reinstall but saving Configuration Data

    Bill Bruncati

      I need to do a clean install of a 7.4.3 Bladelogic App server.

      However, I do not want to lose all of my existing configuration

      settings. I understand that I can export many things

      ( see the list at the end of this post).

       

      I also want to be able

      to keep all of my Server configurations , etc.

       

      Is there a way to save ALL the configuration data

      ( back up the Oracle DB ? ) , do a clean install,

      and then read in the DB to get back all my Bladelogic

      data ?

       

      Thanks,

      Bill
