Document URL: 

Section Number and Name: 
Procedure 16.2. Red Hat Satellite Backup Procedure

 Backup the configuration and data files:

# tar --selinux -czvf config_files.tar.gz \
/etc/katello \
/etc/elasticsearch \
/etc/candlepin \
/etc/pulp \
/etc/gofer \
/etc/pki/katello \
/etc/pki/pulp \
/etc/qpidd.conf \
/etc/sysconfig/katello \
/etc/sysconfig/elasticsearch \
/root/ssl-build \
/var/www/html/pub/* \  

Describe the issue: 
In the command there should not be that " \  " at the end of the last line. It might lead to confusing error when copy&paste-d with it:

# tar --selinux -czvf config_files.tar.gz \
> /etc/katello \
> /etc/elasticsearch \
> /etc/candlepin \
> /etc/pulp \
> /etc/gofer \
> /etc/pki/katello \
> /etc/pki/pulp \
> /etc/qpidd.conf \
> /etc/sysconfig/katello \
> /etc/sysconfig/elasticsearch \
> /root/ssl-build \
> /var/www/html/pub/* \  
tar: Removing leading `/' from member names
tar:  : Cannot stat: No such file or directory
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors

Suggestions for improvement: 
Remove that backslash and spaces around it

Hi Jan!

You're on a roll! :) Thanks for the feedback. I am assigning this to David again because he's the one assigned to Disaster Recovery.
