    SystemDirector metadata backup...

    Hi,

    Due to a virus, I need to install a Windows patch on both SystemDirectors, which is fully supported by Avid. But, I want to make a metadata backup, just in case...

     

    Where can I found the file/s?

     

    Thank you!

    Re: SystemDirector metadata backup...

    Your total metadata is not on the SD-  only partial,  some is on the storage.

     

    What patch-   I may have already done it.   And-  in a 2 SD environment,  you can patch the standby,  fail over, then patch the new "standby"

    Re: SystemDirector metadata backup...

    That´s what I wanted to do: patch the standby one, trigger a failover, then work again on the current standby. If the patch is supported, nothing should happen.

    The MS Windows patch is "KB958644" (Google it). It prevents remote code execution; what makes me doubt about the installation is the fact that MS doesn´t seems to provide a Windows XP Embedded version of the patch, just SP1, SP2, etc.

    That´s why I want to backup my metadata before doing something I can regret.

     

    So, again, how can I backup my SysDir metadata? and do you have any info about this patch?

     

    Thank you in advance.

    D: program files / Avid /Avid Unity ISIS/

     

    Get partition0, Partition1, Partition dump.bin

     

    Back it up,  but only use in case of a failure-   you should have no problems putting the patch in.   I put it in last fall, with no problems.
