Restore Hyperion Shared Services database from the backup. Make sure that the Time stamp of the Hyperion Shared Services database backup and OpenLdap database backup are matching, else you’ll get issues while binding the database.
After successful execution of runRecover.bat file, you should synchronize relational database with openLdap. There is a utility coming with Hyperion called UpdateNativeDir under
Unzip UpdateNativeDir.zip file and navigate to and execute updateNativedir.bat
You can run updateNativedir.bat with the following options
-cssLocation – Required. Absolute path to the location of the
CSS.xml configuration file
-nodelete – Optional. When provided the utility will not delete
any users/groups from Native Directory.
The users/group that will be deleted is listed in the
CSSMigration-Deleted*.log log file
-noprompt – Optional. Silent mode operation. No manual key press
needed. Can be used for scheduled jobs.
-noupdate – Optional. When provided the utility will not update
any users/groups in Native Directory.
The users/group that will be update is listed in the
CSSMigration-Update*.log log file
-doprovider – Optional. When provided the utility will also perform
updateNativeDir -cssLocation http://server_name:port_number/interop/framework/getCSSConfigFile -noprompt -nodelete
What if that there were some issues with the backup (timing difference or issue while restoring) and you lost some provisioning information of 100 users.
Here CSSExport and CSSImport will help you get the provisioning information back. Check Exporting and importing Shared Services Provisioning for more details on Export and Import
You can schedule an export of all the provisioning information daily (or take a manual export after a huge change in the provisioning information).
Just make sure that export.internal.identities in importexport.properties file is set to false. If this information is set to false then the output csv file generated, can be used to import the provisioning back using CSSImport.bat file without any changes.
Hope it helps 🙂
