You can make backups of your management server data and OpenStack database.

For information about backing up Cinder, see Configure the Backup Service for Block Storage.

Prerequisites

Prepare an NFS server to store backup information.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the OpenStack Management Server.
  2. Use the viocli backup command to back up desired information.
    • Run the following command to back up management server data:

      sudo viocli backup mgmt_server nfs-host-ip:/directory

      Backup files are stored in a folder named vio_ms_yyyymmddhhmmss.

    • Run the following command to back up the OpenStack database:

      sudo viocli backup openstack_db nfs-host-ip:/directory

      Backup files are stored in a folder named vio_os_db_yyyymmddhhmmss.

What to do next

If an error occurs on your deployment, you can recover individual nodes or the entire deployment. To recover individual nodes, see Recover OpenStack Nodes. To restore your deployment, see Restore Your Deployment from a Backup.
