Reinstalling Broadband Access Center
This chapter describes the procedures to reinstall Cisco Broadband Access Center (Cisco BAC). Reinstallation in Cisco BAC is enabled only for the purpose of restoring an installation that is corrupted.
This release does not support reinstalling the Regional Distribution Unit (RDU), the Device Provisioning Engine (DPE) and Cisco Network Registrar that are already installed on your system. If you need to reinstall, first uninstall the RDU and DPE, and then reinstall them.
You cannot retrieve a corrupted database after a reinstallation. You must have a backup of the database before it was corrupted.
Reinstalling from the CLI
To reinstall Cisco BAC from the CLI:
Step 1 Back up your database by running the BPR_HOME/rdu/bin/backupDb.sh command, where BPR_HOME is the home directory. The default directory is /opt/CSCObac.
To use this command, you must provide the target directory in which to place the backup files. This directory should be on a disk or partition that has available disk space equivalent to 120% of the current database file size. For detailed information, see the Cisco Broadband Access Center Administrator's Guide, Release 3.6.
You must back up your database before proceeding with the reinstallation procedure. If you do not save your database before uninstalling Cisco BAC (the next step in the procedure), you will lose the information in the database because the
BPR_HOME directory is deleted during an uninstallation.
Step 2 Uninstall Cisco BAC from your system (see Uninstalling from the CLI, page 5-2).
Step 3 Install Cisco BAC as described in Installing Cisco BAC, page 3-2.
Step 4 After you install Cisco BAC 3.6 on your system, restore the database from the backup, and copy the recovered database to the database location that the RDU uses. For detailed information, see the Cisco Broadband Access Center Administrator's Guide, Release 3.6.
