other procedure ..


1. check the configuration file  "bk_config" under /etc/vx/cbr .

2. To change the default location for the configuration database , you need update the  /etc/vx/cbr/bk_config

  #echo "CF_BKUP_PATH=/<new_path>" >> /etc/vx/cbr/bk_config
3. Create the new directory  

 like   /tech/vgconfig/bk/

4. We need to restart the "vxconfigbackupd " after all change .

Note : "vxconfigbackupd" can be restarted any time without any impact to running servers regardless whether server is in cluster or not.

I didn't get your question here, do you want to know which is the best method amongst the two ? or you are suggesting the methods here ?

Also, can you mention on what is the reason to change the default path of config backup ?
