Limiting policy runs

You can reduce the workload of the ORACLE database by converting only policy runs that occurred subsequent to the last manager database conversion.

For example, if the ORACLE database has not been updated with the last three policy runs on manager GS0300 and the last five policy runs on manager GS0400, you can convert these policy runs by adding the following property to the property file:


Save the revised property file as property3.txt in the C:\Program Files\Symantec\Enterprise Security Manager\Symantec ESM Enterprise Utilities directory. Then convert the eight policy runs in the GS0300 and GS0400 manager databases without checking all of the other policy runs by typing the following:

dbconvert -propfile=property3.txt
