Re: Backup CPPM

Hi,

 

Just out curiousity, is it worth it to backup the session data?

If we do not back it up what exactly as we missing out on?

 

Sorry one more question. Is the information from the ClearPass Guest and ClearPass Onboard also included in this backup? 

 

Thank you,

 

Cheers

Aruba

Config= Server settings, Certs, endpoints, guest users

 

Session= anything you would get in access tracker (user history)

Thank You,

Re: Backup CPPM

Hi

 

I have implemented the External Data Puller service and also found a minor issue in the software.

If you have NAT between the machine running the data puller service and your ClearPass host the back up will not work.

From the log file I see that the service is redirected to the actual IP of the ClearPass host when it try to fetch the back up files and thus it can't downlod the file.

 

But if you don't have NAT the service works fine.

Re: Backup CPPM

Hey,

 

Today I got a chance to actually do a full restore from the auto backups that are generated from the ClearPass and all I have to say is that they are awesome!

 

We had an issue with our CPPM that eventually led to us having to redo our server.

We put together a new server, gave it a set of IP's, loaded up our backup and were back online in about 15 minutes.

 

We were even able to reuse the IP's from the old server by simple shutting down the old and changing the IP's on the new server. No need to make changes to the controller or to DNS.

 

The backup restored EVERYTHING! All of our certs from Onboarded devices, all of the modifications we had made to our Self-registration pages... Everything!

 

I was super impressed. Aruba did a really nice job!

 

Thanks to the techs that helped us out!

 

Cheers

Re: Backup CPPM

Is there really no way to have your backups sent to a NAS or file share but only to have it be pulled from a Linux box that runs this file puller. To me this seems archaic. There has to be another way.

Starting in 6.5 you can have it automatically exported to using SFTP or SCP
