Document URL: 



Section Number and Name: 2.2. Prerequisites and 2.3 Pulp Data Considerations

Describe the issue: 

Please update this section:

A backup from Satellite versions 6.1, 6.2, or 6.3 that you make using the katello-backup script. You can use a backup with or without Pulp data. 


A backup from Satellite versions 6.4 or later that you make using "foreman-maintain backup" script. You can use a backup with or without Pulp data. 

Also, katello-backup is referenced lower:

 katello-backup --skip-pulp-content /var/backup --assumeyes

should be replaced with:

 foreman-maintain backup online -y --skip-pulp-content  /var/backup/

as well as:

 katello-backup /var/backup --assumeyes


 foreman-maintain backup offline -y /var/backup/

looks like this is 6.4 only. 6.5 docs do not refer to katello-backup

Comment 2 Melanie Corr 2019-07-24 07:40:35 UTC
Hi Mike, 

The 6.4 guide is for customers upgrading from 6.3 - wouldn't there be a chance that this scenario still affects them?

Comment 3 Melanie Corr 2019-10-10 15:38:59 UTC
I think that any references to katello-backup are in the context of a 6.3 Satellite environment that is upgrading to 6.4. The 6.5 upgrade does not have these references. 
I think this correct, so I am closing this as NOTABUG. Please feel free to reopen if I am wrong.
