Take Virtual Server Backup
Posted by Andrew Smith on 07/03/16 12:11

To take an incremental backup:

  1. Go to your Control Panel's Virtual Servers menu.
  2. Click the label of the server you want to back up.
  3. Click the Backups tab, then select Files. You'll see a list of the disks allocated to that virtual server.
  4. Click the Actions icon next to a disk you want to take a backup of, then click Backup. You'll see a list of all the backups taken and pending for that virtual server sorted by category.
  5. To take a backup, click the Take a Backup button at the end of the list.
PLEASE NOTE: Backups in the OnApp Control Panel are associated with a particular user instead of being associated with a virtual server. To view the list of user backups, refer to View User Backups section.

Template extraction is performed during server provisioning  or taking a backup when using a particular template. To prevent template from being used in other transactions during extraction, template is locked during the extraction and unlocked on accomplishment. If other transaction tries to use the locked template, it will fail after 5 minutes of standby.

Transaction which locked template and failed, means that extracted template is broken.

Storing scheme:

  • template /onapp/templates/your_template.tgz
  • extracted template /onapp/backups/templates/your_template
  • locked template /onapp/backups/templates/your_template.lock
