I have a Test environment with EM Ops Center 12c R2 (126.96.36.19963) with co-located PC configuration and embedded DB on the same server (x64 Sun Fire X4200 M2 with 8GB of RAM and Solaris 10 1/13) and another separate remote PC server (SPARC Sun Fire T5220 with 16 GB of RAM and Solaris 10 1/13. Use this server for Jumpstart function for another project). I use this configuration for ONLY HARDWARE MANAGEMENT (NO "OS Provisiong",NO "Virtualization Management" or another Ops Center features).
This infrastructure monitoring and manage about 50 assets (T-Series, M-Series, ZFSSA 7x000, PDUs, Exadata Stg server, ecc.)
In a few months I will have at disposition a Oracle SPARC T4-1 server with at least 64 GB of RAM. I want install Solaris 10 1/13 as OS and recreate the same EM Ops Center architecture (EC with co-located PC configuration and embedded DB). I want use this configuration for all Ops Center key features (Server and Hardware Mgmt, OS Mgmt,Virtualization Mgmt, ecc.).
It's possible backup EC on x86/x64 platform (ecadm backup ...) and restore EC on SPARC platform (ecadm restore ...) for don't configure by zero the new env? (Same config data: OS release + patching and EM OC ver.). On "8 Backup and Recovery" section of OC Manual don't find any information about porting from different hw platform. I search a "porting" key on EM Ops Center community but zero results.
Thanks a lot for any suggestion.
Not sure whether you have overcome your requirement.
OC DB creates hostid for each installation. It may not be possible to restore the DB in another hardware.
