backup/restore to support legacy backup
Last modified: 2015-09-22 09:09 EDT
ovirt-engine-3.3 introduces formal utility for backup/restore, engine-backup.
This utility should be used as an interface for users to perform all backup/restore activities.
There is a requirement to restore previous version database into current version. If that requirement is valid, the engine-backup utility should support that mode of operation.
One problem is that the legacy backup file contains database creation commands, while in engine-3.3 we expect to restore into existing database.
First we should understand why restoring previous minor backup is required, for that we need PM.
Is there a requirement to restore 3.2 backup into 3.3 environment?
Won't it better to install 3.2, restore database and then upgrade?
