Database backup using TL1

Is there a way to backup TCC+ database using TL1 commands? I checked TL1 command reference, but didn't see any commands that would allow it. I am running 3.4.2 code on TCC+ cards. I have over 40 nodes and it would be nice to automate backups. Thanks, Sergei

Re: Database backup using TL1

The COPY-RFILE command would be the one. I can't remember if the database (RFILE-DB) function was there in 3.4.x.

COPY-RFILE:[]::::TYPE=,[SRC=],[DEST=],[OVWRT=],[FTTD=]

EX: COPY-RFILE::RFILE-DB:100::TYPE=RFBU,DEST="FTP://test123:*******@10.10.10.10/export/home/test123/db";

Re: Database backup using TL1

I get the below error when I try to copy software from node to server. I need help with correct syntax. Server is directly connected to node via tcc card. See below for the tl1 command I used and the error respectively. Thanks for your help in advance.

 

COPY-RFILE:HERNDON:RFILE-PKG:703::TYPE=SWDL,src=“FTP://CISCO15:otbu+1@192.168.5.54:21/ons15454.k9.R900.pkg”,
DEST=“FTP://kabiyesi:bishopp1@192.168.5.21:21/ons15454.k9.R900.pkg”,OVWRT=YES,FTTD=“FTTD_URL”;

Re: Database backup using TL1

Open a TL1 session for the ONS node, and then use the
TL1 copy-rfile command:

copy-rfile::rfile-pkg:1::type=swdl,src="ftp://username:password#ftp-ip-address/package";

So for example, for username=cisco, password=cisco15, ftp server=10.89.148.3, then the TL1 command is:
copy-rfile::rfile-pkg:1::type=swdl,src="ftp://cisco:cisco15@10.89.148.3/15454DWDMSDH-09203-010-H2606.pkg";

APPLY::1::ACT; this is the command to activate software

Note, you need the IP address of the ftp server, not the hostname. The actual placement of the package might require you to use the full path in the TL1 command.

Re: Database backup using TL1

Thank you for your response. I am actually trying to backup software from the ONS node @192.168.5.54 to laptop @192.168.5.21. When I issued the below command:

 

copy-rfile::rfile-pkg:1::type=swdl,src="ftp://CISCO15:otbu+1@192.168.5.54/ons15454.k9.R900.pkg";

 

I got the error below:

Please advise of the correct syntax needed to copy software from node to laptop. Below is my current server settings:

Re: Database backup using TL1

you can take database backup of the node using TL1 by following method.

 

For this, you have to map FTP server to the ONS.

 


We need to follow the following instructions to register the FTP server over ONS nodes.

FTP server registration is the initial step to take or restore database backup of NE. Start & register FTP server at gateway NE.


Figure FTP Host registration from CTC

20140626-095701_image001-2.jpg

 

Input Format:
ENT-FTPSERVER:[<TID>]::<CTAG>:::IPADDR=<IPADDR>, [IPMASK=<IPMASK>],ENABLE=<ENABLE>,[TIMER=<TIMER>];

Example:
ENT-FTPSERVER:::123:::IPADDR=10.20.30.40, IPMASK= 255.0.0.0, ENABLE=Y;

Verify the registration of FTP server at Gateway with help of below command.
Input Format:
RTRV-FTPSERVER:[<TID>]::<CTAG>:::[IPADDR=<IPADDR>], [IPMASK=<IPMASK>],[ENABLE=<ENABLE>];

Output Format
SID DATE TIME
M CTAG COMPLD",:IPADDR=<IPADDR>,IPMASK=<IPMASK>, ENABLE=<ENABLE>, TIMER=<TIMER>";

 

Example:


Output Example
SID DATE TIME
M CTAG COMPLD",:IPADDR=10.20.30.40,IPMASK=255.0.0.0, ENABLE=Y,TIMER=0";

Copy Provisioning and Provisioning + System Database
After completion of ftp server registration, a user can copy two different databases of the system i.e. provisioning database and provisioning + system database.
Input Format:
COPY-RFILE:[<TID>]:<SRC>:<CTAG>::TYPE=<XFERTYPE> ,[src=<SRC1>], [DEST=<DEST>], [OVWRT=<OVWRT>], [FTTD=<FTTD>];

Example of provisioning database:
COPY-RFILE::RFILE-DB:123::TYPE=RFBU, DEST="FTP://username:password@x.x.x.x/filename.db";

Example of complete database:
COPY-RFILE::RFILE-COMPDB:123::TYPE=RFBU ,DEST="FTP://username:password@x.x.x.x/filename.db";

Restore Provisioning and Provisioning + System Database

Database restoration example has been given as an example to rollback database from TL1.
Input Format:
COPY-RFILE:[<TID>]:<SRC>:<CTAG>::TYPE=<XFERTYPE> ,[src=<SRC1>], [DEST=<DEST>], [OVWRT=<OVWRT>], [FTTD=<FTTD>];

Example of provisioning database:
COPY-RFILE::RFILE-DB:123::TYPE=RFR, src="FTP://username:password@x.x.x.x/filename.db", OVWRT=YES;

Example of complete (Provisioning + System) database:
COPY-RFILE::RFILE-COMPDB:123::TYPE=RFR, src="FTP://username:password@x.x.x.x/filename.db", OVWRT=YES;


Below specified Source (SRC) and Transfer types (XFERTYPE ) are given as an input for Database backup, restoration and software download.

Table 1 Types Source (SRC) Inputs
RFILE-DB

Transferring the provisioning database.

RFILE-COMPDB
