Description Lucy Bopf 2016-02-26 07:14:32 UTC
Previously, the --scope option could only be specified once per engine-backup command. If the user wanted to back up both 'files' and 'db', for example, they would have to run the command twice, once for each scope.

Now, the engine-backup command accepts more than one --scope option, so a user could back up both 'files' and 'db' in a single command.

The engine-backup procedures in the Administration Guide and the Self-Hosted Engine Guide should be reviewed and updated.

The engineering bug explains:

"An example:

If a machine had, say, engine+dwh+reports, it's possible now to run:

engine-backup --mode=backup --file=f1 --log=log1 --scope=files --scope=db

and get a backup of the files + engine database. A restore of this on a clean empty machine should result with a working engine (with no dwh/reports).

And another:

engine-backup --mode=backup --file=f1 --log=log1

will backup all, but if then, on an empty clean machine,

engine-backup --mode=restore --file=f1 --log=log1 --scope=files --scope=db

should also result with a working engine (and no dwh/reports)."
