Backup on HA configuration.

Hi all,

I'm looking for best practices regardin backup and restore when the HA is activated.

My main concern is if the backups are interchangeable or not, if there is a backup done on the Master node, can be used to recover a slave node? Are the backups independant in terms of HA roles?

The main issue is to have a clear picture on how to manage backups in case of failover during an extended period of time (more than one day).


Thanks in advance,

The database depends only on the schema. So as long as both nodes have the exact same packages loaded (which they should!) then the database file is compatible.

In fact, you can use this for lab purposes, you can copy a database from a running nso into your lab to perform experiments (upgrade, new features,…) on your real data.
