Recovering a vRealize Log Insight cluster to the same host is straightforward and can be performed by any tool.

Prerequisites

Review important information about Planning and Preparation.

Procedure

  1. Power off the existing cluster before beginning the restoration operation. By default, the same IP addresses and FQDNs are used for the restored cluster nodes.
  2. (Optional) : Provide a new name for the cluster.

    During the restoration process, the original copy of the cluster is overwritten with the restored version unless a new name is provided to the virtual machine.

  3. (Optional) : If possible, verify that all network, IP, and FQDN settings that are used for the production environment are preserved in the restored and recovered site.

What to do next

After a successful restoration and a sanity check, delete the old copy to conserve resources and to prevent accidental split-brain situations if a user powers on the old copy.
