It is not possible to backup the UI host on OA 7.0, while trying to configure the system backup by following the steps from [OA Maintenance Guide] Configure system backup.

[root@osscore ~]# /usr/local/pem/bin/ -z -t ui
Tag:                    ui
Database host:
Output directory:       /var/tmp/sysbackups
Use gzip:               yes
tar: Cowardly refusing to create an empty archive
Try `tar --help' or `tar --usage' for more information. error: backup failed


The script has not been adapted to 7.0 specifics yet, the improvement is expected in scope of request POA-110903.


Edit the script and replace the line with SELECT:

"SELECT c.host_id FROM components c JOIN packages p \
                    ON (p.pkg_id = c.pkg_id) WHERE = 'chief' AND \
                    p.ctype = 'cp'"

with the following query:

"SELECT c.host_id  FROM components c JOIN packages p ON (c.pkg_id = p.pkg_id) JOIN hosts h ON (c.host_id = h.host_id) WHERE = 'pui-war' AND p.ctype= 'other'"
