I’m building small scale OpenNebula environment using single dedicated server as a KVM node. I installed OpenNebula frontend in a internet facing vm located in AWS Singapore region.
My only kvm node is also facing internet & communicate with the front-end using internet. All are working fine.
What I need to know is how to backup the setup. I have RAID setup in kvm node so I’m not going to backup it at this stage because this is a testing phase. I just need to know how to backup front-end. What things I need to backup in the front-end ? is backing up mysql database will be enough to recover front end ?
Version : 5.6.1
Hypervisors : KVM
On our side we are also thinking about such need as we have a production cluster with 3 Front ends in HA mode.
Even if this kind of deployment is more secure because configuration and database is 3 times replicated, we also need to backup everything in case of DB corruption or wrong changes in configuration.
So At least what we have in mind is:
- regular dumps of MySQL DB to be backed-up on an external platform
- Backup of configuration files certainly files under:
/etc/one/* (in a git repo on gitlab or somewhare else)
- Backup of remotes driver configuration under:
/var/lib/one/remotes (in git repo too)
- Backup of VM configuration under
- If you customized sunstone, a backup of your custommization of course
That we have in ming in my company, someone from OpenNebula can confirm or add items to be backuped.
did you face any issues when restoring from above mentioned backups in your reply ?
