system configuration recovery node restore

Restore node configuration from a backup

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the advanced privilege level.

Description

The system configuration recovery node restore command restores the configuration of the local node from a configuration backup file.

Use the system configuration backup show command to view available configuration backup files.

Parameters

-backup <text> - Backup Name
Use this parameter to specify the name of a configuration backup file to use as the configuration template.
[-nodename-in-backup <text>] - Use Backup Identified by this Nodename
Use this parameter to specify a node within the configuration backup file to use as a configuration template. Only specify this parameter if you are specifying a name other than the name of the local node.
[-force [true]] - Force Restore Operation
Use this parameter with the value true to force the restore operation and overwrite the current configuration of the local node. This overrides all compatibility checks between the node and the configuration backup. The configuration in the backup is installed even if it is not compatible with the node's software and hardware.

Use this parameter with the value false to be warned of the specific dangers of restoring and be prompted for confirmation before executing the command. This value also assures that the command performs compatibility checks between configuration stored in the backup and the software and hardware of the node. The default is false.

Examples

The following example shows how to restore the configuration of the local node from the configuration backup of node3 that is stored in the configuration backup file example.backup.7z.
cluster1::*> system configuration recovery node restore -backup example.backup.7z
Warning: This command overwrites local configuration files with files contained
         in the specified backup file. Use this command only to recover from a
         disaster that resulted in the loss of the local configuration files.
         The node will reboot after restoring the local configuration.
