This topic describes how to install BOSH Backup and Restore (BBR).
To install BBR, first validate that your jumpbox VM is a valid BOSH backup host, then copy the BBR executable to the jumpbox.
After installing BBR, you can run
bbr commands to back up and restore your Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Integrated Edition deployment.
For more information about using BOSH Backup and Restore, see:
Using BBR requires the following:
A jumpbox is a separate, hardened server on your network that provides a controlled means of accessing the other VMs on your network. See the jumpbox-deployment GitHub repository for an example jumpbox deployment.
To determine the correct version of BBR for your deployment, see the Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Integrated Edition Release Notes. To download a BBR installation file, see BOSH Backup and Restore on the VMware Tanzu Network.
Configure your jumpbox to meet the following requirements:
Note: BBR uses SSH to orchestrate the backup of your Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Integrated Edition instances using port 22 by default.
bbr executable to a local disk then upload the executable to the jumpbox:
To add executable permissions to the
bbr binary file, run the following command:
chmod a+x bbr
To securely copy the
bbr binary file to your jumpbox, run the following command:
scp LOCAL-PATH-TO-BBR/bbr JUMPBOX-USER@JUMPBOX-ADDRESS:
LOCAL-PATH-TO-BBRis the path to the
bbrbinary you downloaded from VMware Tanzu Network.
JUMPBOX-USERis the ssh username for connecting to the jumpbox.
JUMPBOX-ADDRESSis the IP address, or hostname, of the jumpbox.
