Recovering a vRealize Log Insight cluster to the same host is straightforward and can be performed by any tool.
Review important information about Planning and Preparation.
- 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.
- (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.
- (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.
