need to take ignite backup

Hi experts,

wishing a very happy new year to all !!!

I need to take a ignite backup of my server.

Iam not able to view the man page well.

I got a procedure :

Run command make_net_recovery :
# make_net_recovery -s -n 3 -a :/var/opt/ignite/recovery/archives/ -x inc_entire=/dev/vg00 -x exclude=/home -x exclude=/VPMDATA -x exclude=/tout_fs_que_vous_voulez_exclure

here the server I want to take the copy is server1

ignite server name is==> ignite

Run command make_net_recovery :
# make_net_recovery -s -n 3 -a :/var/opt/ignite/recovery/archives/ -x inc_entire=/dev/vg00 -x

exclude=/home


Run command make_net_recovery :
# make_net_recovery -s -n 3 -a :/var/opt/ignite/recovery/archives/ -x inc_entire=/dev/vg00 -x

exclude=/home

is -s ===> ignite servers name / the server whos image need to be saved ? pls correct me

after -n 3 -a ==> :/var/opt/ignite/recovery/archives/

here I guess it should be used as below, from ignite server

-n 3 -a ignite:/var/opt/ignite/recovery/archives/server1_image ??

if you can correct me using my ignite servers as well as local server's image that to be backed up using in the syntax thatI provided will deeply be appreciated.
many thnx for your help.

Re: need to take ignite backup

Hi Sreer,

from man pages:

-s Ignite-UX_server


Specifies the hostname of the Ignite-UX server. The
configuration files, defaults and contents files for the
client system will be written to the Ignite-UX server in
/var/opt/ignite/clients/0xLLA/recovery. The
make_net_recovery tool will NFS mount the per-client
directory to access this information.

-a archive_server:archive_directories


Specifies the NFS server and location onto which to store
the archive. The archive directory must be NFS exported (see
the section Exporting Archive Directory), and sufficient
disk space is required. The default is the hostname of the
Ignite-UX server followed by the directory which holds the
archive, e.g.,
Serverhost:/var/opt/ignite/recovery/archives/hostname. The
hostname is the name of the system being archived. Each
make_net_recovery client will create a subdirectory named
for the client hostname under the specified directory to
store the archives.


-n number_archives

Specifies the number of archives that should remain on the
server at any given time. The default is two (2). If number_archives is two and there are already two archives
present when a third is being created, make_net_recovery
will remove the oldest archive after successfully creating
the newest archive.

Re: need to take ignite backup

Hello

For net recovery

/opt/ignite/bin/make_net_recovery -v -s ignite -x inc_entire=vg00 -P s

or just run

/opt/ignite/bin/make_net_recovery -v -s ignite -P s <-- if


Tape recovery

make_tape_recovery -I -v -x inc_entire=vg00 -a /dev/rmt/#mn ( #- tape device )

Re: need to take ignite backup

Hi Sree,

Wish you a very happy new year!!

Run command make_net_recovery :
# make_net_recovery -s -n 3 -a :/var/opt/ignite/recovery/archives/ -x inc_entire=/dev/vg00 -x exclude=/home

is -s ===> ignite servers name / the server whos image need to be saved ? pls correct me

Run this command from the client!

client ==> the host , whose image need to be archived.

Server ==> Where you save the archive.

so , -s is server name.
just make the syntax simple untill and unless you need something special.

-a = alternate path if you want to save the archive; It will save to the default location,.

-n = number of archives , do you really want 3 archives? ( existing backups). defualt is 2.

# make_net_recovery -s igniteserver -Av -x inc_entire=vg00 -x exclude=/home
