Hello community,

I have a Performance Management 3.7 deployment with a cluster of 3 data repositories.
The backups are done locally and later are exported to external repository (from all 3 members of the cluster).

My question is:
- When I need to do a restore from those external backups, I copy them just to one of the cluster members or do I need to copy respectively to each one of them (cluster members)?

Thanks in advance and happy new year

Hi Bruno,

To restore a backup you need to run a command like this

/opt/vertica/bin/vbr.py --task restore --config-file configuration_directory_path_filename

You need to restore files (the ones you copied to an external system) to each pf the locations indicated in the backup file. If it was done locally, to the local folder on each node.

To confirm the backup files restored from the external system are ready to be restored you can run this command to list the available backups

/opt/vertica/bin/vbr.py --task listbackup --config-file configuration_directory_path_filename
