Description Sebastian Faulhaber 2014-07-30 12:37:48 UTC
Title: Backing Up Node Host Files

Describe the issue:
Unfortunately there does not seem information available on how to backup an OSE environment. I only found section 2.9 in the Administration guide which covers at least a bit for the Node Host part.

Suggestions for improvement:
Add a separate section in the Administration guide "Backup and restore". These topics should possibly be included:

A. Broker
GIT Repository

B. Node

Additional information:

Comment 5 Alex Dellapenta 2015-04-09 19:49:42 UTC
The node backup sections (for both the Deploy and Admin Guides) have been updated for more detail. The node recovery section in the Admin Guide has also been updated, including use of the oo-admin-regenerate-gear-metadata tool, which is available starting in OSE 2.1.6.

A section on backing up broker components already existed in the Deploy Guide, so it now appears in the Admin Guide (within the larger "Backup and Recovery" section) as well as the Deploy Guide (in the spot it's always been).

These changes will be published with the next round of documentation updates (should occur within the next week), and I'll update here with relevant links once they're live.
