YABU-Yet Another Backup Utility

This is a dumb one on my part so learn from my mistakes.

On my MDS’s I use WebUI to schedule backups. I like to restore using command line so I can see when it blows up. Well, there are at least 5 backup and restore commands

  1. /bin/restore — backups
  2. /sbin/restore — snapshots
  3. mds_backup — mds backups
  4. cpbackup_util restore –file BACKUPFILENAME.tgz – Does snapshots and backups
  5. CLISH: set backup restore local BACKUPFILENAME.tgz — clish version of #4

So make sure you use the right restore with the right backup.  I wound up using CLISH after 3 tries.

And make sure you test the integrity of your backups. Word from old and lesser dumb.

Backup OUT!
