What does Shared Services backup consist of. I believe it has to do with the roles and all of users right? But a bit confused.
For example, I went in to HSS and exported the SHARED SERVICES to the FILESYSTEM. Can someone please tell me what is the main use of the the SHARED SERVICES in terms of this case?
ALSO, one way I can import is again using the LCM, however, if I dont want to use the LCM, what would be the way to import the SHARED SERVICES that I have backed up.
ALSO, I have used the DMP files to create a new application. Do I need to import the SHARED SERVICES as well in this case.
Shared Services holds the following information
User directory configurations
Single sign-on configuration
Native Directory management
Role-based access control management
Audit configuration and report management
Shared services registry
So you are backing up the above, taking a database backup is important , to restore you would do as you have previously with Oracle backups.
It depends if you backed up the HSS schema, I don't know what your (.dmp) is an export of. If you have not backed up the HSS schema then you will need to add it to your backup scripts.
I case I do not have HSS on DMP, what I can do is: After restoring the planning application with DMP, I can always go to shared services and use the LCM tool to import on the new application right?
Is there also a different way to import the HSS which has been backed up from the source application?
I think maybe there is some confusion, you only need a backup of the HSS database for restoring on the same environment, not different environments, if there was a problem with Shared Services then you have a backup to restore from.
If you want to migrate provisoning between environments then you can use LCM.
