Copy the files of the backup taken during bring-up to an accessible location.
About this task
During bring-up, the SoS tool makes backup files of these components' configurations on the rack:
Switches (management, ToRs, spine)
The three infrastructure (ISVM) virtual machines' Zookeeper server instances and Cassandra distributed database
SDDC Manager VM (VRM)
HMS configurations on the SDDC Manager
After bring-up is complete, you must copy these files to an accessible location.
- In a command line window, SSH to the SDDC Manager VM with your root credentials.
- Navigate to /var/tmp/.
- Copy the backup-xxx file to a location from where you can conveniently retrieve them for future configuration restoration situations.
