The VMware Blockchain Orchestrator deployment schema file includes definitions of available properties to clone your deployment environment.

Clone Replica and Client Node Parameters

To troubleshoot a node failure without introducing any errors in the production environment, you can clone a deployment environment. Within the cloned environment, you can perform the following operations:

  • Test whether the fix is working correctly before applying the fix to your production environment.

  • Deploy the same version of VMware Blockchain with a different topology.

For cloning implementation details, see the Getting Started with VMware Blockchain guide. To clone a deployment, back up the existing blockchain state, and restore the backup data in the cloned deployment, see VMware Blockchain Back Up and Restore.
