For enterprise customers, backing up and restoring data stored on HP-UX Encrypted Volume and File Systems (EVFS) volumes are critical. However, the available native backup tools such as cpio and dd pose some limitations. To overcome these limitations and to offer a reliable, easy, and efficient method to back up and restore data on HP-UX EVFS volumes, HP recommends using the HP OpenView Storage Data Protector 6.0 (Data Protector) software. This white paper describes how to back up and restore critical data stored on HP-UX EVFS volumes using HP OpenView Storage Data Protector. It discusses two successfully tested scenarios for backing up and restoring data, and one scenario for backing up and restoring keys of the HP-UX EVFS volumes.
