Hi, A replica does not survive an internal corruption....surely you would just duplicate the corruption?......unless you are telling me there is a way to avoid that with replication alone?
So for me its like Raiding disks.....a tape backup survives a data corruption and isnt really there for a hardware failure....call my paranoid but a tape (OK, I now have a virtual tape library) has saved my ass often enough that want them. regards Steven Jones Technical Specialist - Linux RHCE Victoria University, Wellington, NZ 0064 4 463 6272 ________________________________________ From: freeipa-users-boun...@redhat.com [freeipa-users-boun...@redhat.com] on behalf of Jakub Hrozek [jhro...@redhat.com] Sent: Friday, 30 September 2011 10:34 a.m. To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: [Freeipa-users] backing up and restoring the backend On Thu, Sep 29, 2011 at 08:55:35PM +0000, Steven Jones wrote: > Hi, > > Backing up > > I cant find anything in the documentation discussing backing up and > recovering IPA/ldap?....in the past I seem to recall the FDS/389 suggested > exporting the data which was then backed up.....I think there was a gui to do > that.... > > So even if its a case of now its easy just backup /var/lib/dirsrv and nothing > more is needed, it should say so IMHO. > > Restoring > > Is there a restore process? so with FDS/389 you would import the exported > file. > > regards > Why not just create a replica?
