Hello DRBD Community,
How is it possible to make a System Backup and Restore of a DRBD cluster
I'm looking for an easy disaster recovery method without the need of
installing, setting up the system and drbd.
The disk scheme is as following:
/dev/cciss/c0d0p1 = /boot
/dev/cciss/c0d0p2 = / with LVM (entire disk) and LV's:
- system /
- . Application and Data LV's, that are mirrored with the remote
cluster peer via DRBD
I could imagine that an sector based method (e.g. dd or IFL) will work, but
it will need a lot of time and will produce a huge image
if you save the entire disk to an image. One idea is to backup & restore
MBR, partition table/disk scheme, LVM, system LV only.
After connecting the desaster recovered node, it must be replicated from the
allive node with current data and applications anyway.
But I dont know how to make this kind of selective sector based backup &
restore and if this ist the right method for DRBD.
Thanks for hints and regards Steffen
