Script to automate Oracle Calendar Server exports

Thanks to Marco Siefert, KUTTIG GmbH, Germany for this script that he's just used on a migration from OCS to Exchange right now. It would work just as well of course for exporting in an Oracle Calendar to Zimbra migration.

No matter what I do in blogger, the indentations get screwy so I'm also putting this in the next round of migration documentation.


export CAL_HOME=/opt/oracle/OraOcs10gHome/ocal/bin
#Set allowpasswordoption = TRUE in [UTL] section of unison.ini of OCS calendar

$CAL_HOME/uniuser -ls -format "%s%:%g%:%uid%:%id%:%node-id%:" -n 1 -p sysoppassword > users.txt
$CAL_HOME/uniuser -resource -ls "S=*" -n 1 -p sysoppassword> resources.txt
while read mylinedo
#Replacing spaces with % so it can be passed to awk


str=${str/\ /%}
#Declaring variables





#Launching export command with awk

echo sysoppassword awk -v str=$str -v st=$startch -v end=$endch 'BEGIN{

if (length(str)>0){

system("echo Processing line "str)
#Cutting variables out of the line









#Replacing % in uid for unicpoutu tool, not replacing it in givenname because that is used in the export filename

gsub("%"," ",uid)

system("echo UID="uid)

#When we have a givenname then start with export

if (length(givenname) > 0)

system("$CAL_HOME/unicpoutu -u \"UID="uid"\" -f exp-"surname"-"givenname".txt -n 1")


else system("echo ---------------------------------------")

Reference our earlier posts on exporting data from Oracle Calendar. For example, How to Extract Data from Oracle Calendar Server for a migration into Exchange or Zimbra.

In the script the value for CAL_HOME and sysoppassword have to be replaced before running.

To provide a password to unicpoutu change the config file "unison.ini" before exporting (can be found in $CAL_HOME\ocal\misc). The line allpasswordoption = TRUE should be added to the [UTL] section.

Just for reference, this is no longer useful for our Oracle Calendar to Exchange migrations. This was based on our first generation technology and we're into our fourth generation now not using UNICPOUTU.
