Oracle VM: Restore OVM Manager "Simple Names" After a Rebuild/Reinstall (Doc ID 2129616.1)

Last updated on APRIL 03, 2024

Applies to:

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure - Version N/A and later
Oracle VM - Version 3.3.1 and later
Linux x86-64


There are occasions when a re-install of OVM Manager is required, together with restoration of a previously backed-up database. However, the manager database restore does not recover the "simple names" of objects - e.g. virtual machine and disk names, even though the backup saves these in an xml file.

The attached ovm_shell scripts will restore these simple names from the xml file created from an automated or manual backup of the manager database.
