Re: DataFabric Manager server database backup and restore process

A UM 5.x backup (dfm backup create) will backup everything required for a disaster recovery or to migrate the functionality/hosts/data to another server.

I am not aware of a method to restore from the UI.

It contains a lot of DFM configuration informations.

"dfm backup diag"  shows you the names of the directories that are stored in the backup.

You may also replace the ".ndb" file extension to ".zip" and have a look at the content of the ZIP-Archive.

As far as i know, only the SSL keys are missing in the backup.

Yes. Only CLI.  dfm backup restore BACKUPFILENAME

There are too many people touching and trying every button they can find. ;-)

HI,

>>1.Is DataFabric Manager server database backup proecss include DataFabric Manager server's configuration file?

If you create a backup all the dfm options are captured and when you restore it it will result back to the DFM from where you had backed up the db from.

>>3.Is DataFabric Manager server database restore process can only be perform in command line ?

You have an option to backup and schedule backup from Operations manager UI:

http://<dfm ip>:8080/dfm/edit/database-backup

But for restore you might have to resort back to cli as restores mean downtime and its not done often like backup.

Thanks,
