I'm helping an old Extreme customer in a real trouble... As they aren't our customer yet, they came with a "bomb" in hands for us...
Just about the scenario: The customer have 1 NS server and is running 1 NAC appliance.
The NetSight Server died last night... The hardware has crashed, including disks becoming unrecoverable. The NAC appliance still running as expected and the customer have a backup they made last week manually (Server Information -> Database -> Backup: Database and Reporting) before the upgrade to the last 6.2 version.
With a new server for NS up and running, after installing NetSight, we started the NetSight DB restore, but we got an error message:
/usr/local/Extreme_Networks/NetSight/backup/netsight is not a database file that can be restored from NetSight.
NetSight can only restore database files backed up by the application. Database files containing CREATE TABLE statements may have been generated by MySQL and may possibly be restored by it. Please verify that the selected file is a valid NetSight database backup file and try again.
If there's no way to recover, we will need to reconfig it all, but the customer's major concern is about the NAC configuration (now empty in the new NS server): They don'thave any documentation about the NAC deployment made by the old partner, and the old partner doesn't have it too... BIG PROBLEM...
SSHing to the NAC Appliance (which still running), all configs are there, and all viewable by nacstatus command.
The big question is: There's any way to "import" this info to NAC Manager or we will need to take the xml file and make it manually?
