Backing up Oracle VM

Backup is always required for the enterprise products, so is for Oracle VM.
let's start backing up one by one component of oracle VM.
1. Oracle VM manager:  Oracle VM manager is responsible for managing OVS and VMs.
Things need to be backup up for the manager are:
  1. /u01- if possible keep a backup of this folder. This is the folder in which all installers goes.
  2. /u01/app/oracle/ovm-manager-3/.config- This config file is Oracle VM Manager configuration file for database
  3. /etc/sysconfig/ovmm-Oracle VM Manager configuration file for backups-contains UUID for the manager. Incase of reinstall of VM manager it provides UUID of previous installation.
  4. OVS schema- this is the default schema created by the OVM.- if possible take full DB backup
2. Oracle VM Guests and Resources: We don't want to reinstall the VMs in case of any disaster. So need a proper strategies for the VM guests and resources. here are the important files need to be backed up.
  1. /OVS/Repositories/<UUID>/Assemblies-
  2. /OVS/Repositories/<UUID>/ISOs-
  3. /OVS/Repositories/<UUID>/Templates-
  4. /OVS/Repositories/<UUID>/VirtualDisks-
  5. /OVS/Repositories/<UUID>/VirtualMachines/<VirtualMachineUUID>/vm.cfg-
