Restoring LMS backup

I see Cisco recommends the remote upgrade method for upgrading to LMS 2.5.x. But has anyone successfully upgraded using the local upgrade method? I thought I read it's not very reliable.

Say, I have LMS 2.2 in /product/CSCOpx on Host A. Will $NMSROOT/bin/restorebackup.pl be able to restore this data to /opt/product/CSCOpx on the same box or on Host B?

Yes. For the best results, you should fully upgrade to LMS 2.5.1 plus all service packs before attempting to migrate data from LMS 2.2.

Re: Restoring LMS backup

Could you clarify if the "yes" was in reponse to to "successfully upgraded using the local upgrade method" or "Will $NMSROOT/bin/restorebackup.pl be able to restore this data to /opt/product/CSCOpx on the same box or on Host B?"

Another question is, does RBackup.sh HAVE to be run from the IPM 2.6 CD? Can I copy RBackup.sh to the local file system somewhere and expect it to run correctly?

The "yes" was in response to both questions.

The RBackup.sh script can be run off of the CD.
