How to get Visualrf backup from CLI
Requirement:

 

Airwave version should be 8.0 or above

Visualrf should be enabled on Airwave



Solution:

 

We can create only the visualrf backup from Airwave CLI by executing "visualrf_backup.pl" command followed by filename in the format "file_name.zip". The backup would get created under "/var/airwave-backup/visualrf".



Configuration:

 

We can execute the below command to create the Visualrf backup from CLI

# visualrf_backup.pl visualrfbackup.zip

 

Below would be the output we would see on screen when we execute the above command,

Tue Feb  2 02:25:09 2016:: Start VisualRF
Tue Feb  2 02:25:30 2016:: backup filename visualrfbackup.zip, in dir /var/airwave-backup/visualrf.



Verification

 

We can go to the path "/var/airwave-backup/visualrf" to check whether the backup is created.

 

#/var/airwave-backup/visualrf

We can use the below command to list out the files in this directory

 

# ls -lh
total 1.4M
-rw-r--r-- 1 visualrf visualrf 1.4M Feb  2 02:40 visualrfbackup.zip
