Note: Please refer to the DELL EMC Solve procedures before performing this task, this is for example purposes only, running VxRail code 4.5.210.
This is an example of a manual file-based backup of your VxRail Manager config, which is invaluable in the event you are required to recover the VxRail Manager.
In this example I accessed the VxRail Manager via SSH with mystic account, su to root and navigate to the backup script directory:
The following command executes the backup script:
python vxm_backup_restore.py -b
If you wish to include the logs in the backup then append with
python vxm_backup_restore.py -b --keeplog
The following command lists all the backups taken:
python vxm_backup_restore.py -l
Log file location:
The backups are stored on the associated vCenter vSAN Datastore:
The solve procedures also explain how to configure VxRail Manager for a scheduled automated backup of the config.
