Release Notes

Release Notes blooSafe Installer V2.0.0
This release is for Windows x64 versions ONLY.

The installer should be run on a system without an existing IBM Spectrum Protect Client installation. Unexpected behaviour may
occur if the installer is used on a system which already has IBM Spectrum Protect Client installed, including replacement of dsm.opt,
change of existing schedules or failures during certificate database creation.

Usage - GUI
Run bloosafe_2.0.1.exe - extracts files, asks for destination, creates a folder bloosafe in the destination directory
go to boosafe folder, run bloosafe_setup.exe
The program guides you through the installation. The installer asks for administrator privileges when started.
Create the backup node on the backup portal - - before you run the installer.

Additional files are extracted in the bloosafe folder. The bloosafe folder can be deleted after the installation completes.

Usage - CLI
Silently extract files:
--- extract files to current folder, creates a folder bloosafe containing all files.
bloosafe_2.0.1.exe -y
--- extract files to c:\temp, creates a folder bloosafe containing all files.
bloosafe_2.0.1.exe -y -o"C:\temp"

Silent install - must be run with administrator privileges:
bloosafe_setup.exe /node <sp name> /server <sp server> /port <port> /config full|usersonly /log <logfile>

bloosafe_setup.exe /node 000001 /server /config usersonly /log C:\Windows\Temp\bloosafe.log
bloosafe_setup.exe /node 000001 /server /config full /log C:\Temp\bloosafe.log

/node is the backup node, create the node in the backup portal - - before running the installation.
/server is the sp server name shown in the backup portal. The fully qualified domain name must be used, as it appears in the portal.
/port is the ssl-enabled server port. This parameter is optional, defaults to 1542 if not specified.
/config specifies the dsm.opt template to be installed. the option "usersonly" installs a dsm.opt which excludes everything but
C:\Users. The option full installs a dsm.opt with DOMAIN all-local and default excludes only. All local drives are included in a backup.

Additional files are extracted in the bloosafe folder. The bloosafe folder can be deleted after the installation completes.


In GUI mode, the installer logs to C:\Windows\Temp\bloosafe.log. In silent mode, use the /log parameter.

dsm.opt Modifications
You may want to adjust dsm.opt according to your needs, e. g. exclude directories, change the default management class or the domain parameter.
