The dbed_saveconfig command is used to collect and record configuration information on Oracle, Veritas products, and system hardware. Information is gathered in the context of a specified Oracle database. This facility is also available from the GUI.

The utility gathers enough information to allow an administrator to reconstruct a system and database from scratch in the event of a complete system failure. The information collected is in the form of many system configuration files and the results of querying the system hardware, Veritas products, and Oracle.

The dbed_saveconfig output displays the location where configuration has been saved.


The following options are supported:
Specifies the name of the Oracle database for which the configuration will be saved.
The ORACLE_HOME setting for the ORACLE_SID database.
An optional directory for storing configuration information. If this option is not supplied, then the data will be stored in a temporary directory under /tmp.
Disables SFDB repository refresh. By default, dbed_saveconfig will refresh the SFDB repository if this option is not supplied.
Shows command usage.
Sets interactive mode.


This example shows how to save the Oracle configuration environment:

$ /opt/VRTS/bin/dbed_saveconfig -S PROD -H /oracle/product/9i
Saving System and Oracle Information, please wait

You must run dbed_saveconfig as the Oracle DBA user to retrieve information from an Oracle Database.
