Creating a Shell Map

    Good evening:

    I have a question about creating a shell mapping file.

    I see the following in the Backup/Restore manual:

    "Execute psarestore with –s shell_map_file_template to automatically generate a file, containing all shells that were mentioned in the backup. Following is an example of this file."

    However, this command doesn't work for me when I run it. It says it requires an ip-mail and a dump. I just want to create the file.

    Is there a default file that I can use? I just want to copy a RH9 7.5.4 installation to RHEL4.

    Thanks for the help.

    To be able to create shell mapping file you need to have some dump file. After that procedure is the following:

    /usr/local/psa/bin/psarestore -t -f <your_existing_dump_file> -s shells_map_file -m ip_map_file

    -t - test mode, if this key is specified then restoring procedure will not run, only the checking process;

    This command will create two files in current directory: shells_map_file, ip_map_file

    For more information you can run:

    /usr/local/psa/bin/psarestore --help

    Hope it helps...
