Finding a configuration backup file to use for recovering a node

You use a configuration backup file located at a remote URL or on a node in the cluster to recover a node configuration.

About this task

You can use either a cluster or node configuration backup file to restore a node configuration.

Step

  1. Make the configuration backup file available to the node for which you need to restore the configuration.
    If the configuration backup file is located... Then...
    At a remote URL Use the system configuration backup download command at the advanced privilege level to download it to the recovering node.
    On a node in the cluster
    1. Use the system configuration backup show command at the advanced privilege level to view the list of configuration backup files available in the cluster that contains the recovering node's configuration.
    2. If the configuration backup file you identify does not exist on the recovering node, then use the system configuration backup copy command to copy it to the recovering node.
    If you previously re-created the cluster, you should choose a configuration backup file that was created after the cluster recreation. If you must use a configuration backup file that was created prior to the cluster recreation, then after recovering the node, you must re-create the cluster again.
