AirWave Restore From Backup

Trying to restore from a backup and having some issues with the amp_restore script. 

 

Copied the nightly_backup001.tar.gz file to new server in tmp directory, logged in as root and typed "scripts" to get to the scripts prompt. Then I ran the following command:

./amp_restore -d /tmp/nightly_data001.tar.gz.

 

Then we get the error:

bash:./amp_restore:no such file or directory

 

Any idea why it wouldn't be able to find that script? 


Thank you.

Re: AirWave Restore From Backup

We identified that the end-user had created custom logins for the CLI and we were being put in a different home directory, we backed out to the top level using 'cd ..' and tne worked our way back to the original location using 'cd ~', 'cd svn', 'cd mercury' and 'scripts'.

 

We are now trying to run the amp_restore and getting error stating:

 

gzip: stdin: not in gzip format

/bin/tar: Child returned status 1

/bin/tar: Error is not recoverable: existing now

No system bandwidth rrd found, assuming normal amp restore at ./amp_restore line 70.

Verifying completeness of /tmp/night_data001.tar.gz...

 

We tried running 'root; make' to build the rrd file, but didn't work because we are running RHEL and not CentOS. 

 

Any ideas?


Thank you.

Re: AirWave Restore From Backup

Turns out the nightly backup we downloaded was corrupted or did not contain all required files. Did manual backup and had no issues.

Restore is now complete. Also I think manual
backup is recommended.

Thank you.

Re: AirWave Restore From Backup

Hi all

 

Please, when the manual backup was done and the restore later, no data was lost? not lost graphics in the monitoring of APs, clients, SSIDs, etc., the configurations were kept intact?

 

Thank you

Hi David,


Yes, even the manual backup will have all the data which you usually have in the nightly backup.

Like the config, group details, historical retention, graphs, reports,visualrf etc.

Re: AirWave Restore From Backup

Hi Vishnu

 

I see the same error in the restore, but I´m restoring in an AMP virtualized.

 

Apparently, the AMP restore was succesfull but with this errors:

/bin/tar: var/airwave/snapshot: Not found in archive
/bin/tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors

 

I can´t see the data in real time, attached the picture (no data). Is this a normal behavior?

 

Should I have the data before of the restore or before of the change box?

 

Regards

David
