Accessing History of Configuration Changes into xml
« on: November 05, 2018, 10:03:59 PM »
Hi Experts,

I have been trying to get the history of configuration changes into xml file by following the below genesys document:-

https://docs.genesys.com/Documentation/FR/8.5.1/Dep/ConfHistCh

I tried the steps as explained in the doc but not able to get the xml file. Although i do get data in the database table cfg_hdb_object but i am struggling to get the xml export.

Could anyone help me on this?

Have you run the confserv.exe to do the export? If on Windows, try to run it in a command window an see if you get anyerror message

Start cmd as an administrator, navigate to where you have confserv installed (D:\GCTI\confserv) and do the export:


 confserv.exe -dumpauditxml export.xml

Also confirm that you are running a version newer than 8.5.101.19 since there was a bug on versions before that.

Thanks for help catanirex. It worked just fine. The silly mistake i was doing while running the startup command was using startServer.exe.
Sure hsujdik, i am using the version newer to 8.5.101.19.

But the solution is not working for any other instance of config server as i dont want to do it on Primary Config server anymore.

I made a new config server application, you can say a dummy one(installed as well) and configured it to the same db. Then when i ran the startup command for export file, it didnt give my any export file but it gave me an error:-  Config server is running in Read Only mode.

Any pointer?

You can't run 2 cfgserver against a single DB. There are some locks at DB that CFGSERVER do in order to avoid conflicts.

Why NOT run it on primary config server? As mentioned in the documentation, the main confserv can be running. Just start a "second" instance with these parameters that only will do the export and then close it self.
