Cluster Backup - cluster_meta

markrthomas

Hello

 

I’m trying to create a cluster from backups, as per:

 

https://docs.basho.com/riak/kv/2.2.3/using/cluster-operations/backing-up/

https://docs.basho.com/riak/kv/2.2.3/using/cluster-operations/changing-cluster-info/#clusters-from-backups

 

I’ve backup-up:

 

Bitcask                                  /var/lib/riak/bitcask

Ring                                       /var/lib/riak/ring

Configuration                    /etc/riak

Cluster Metadata             /var/lib/riak/cluster_meta

Search                                  /var/lib/riak/yz

 

Do I need the ‘cluster_meta’ folder?

 

Thanks

 

Mark

Hi Mark,

The docs suggest you do. I don’t know what bad things happen if you don’t include it though. Cluster meta data is the gossip and storage subsystem for things like bucket-types and other internal riak metadata, you probably want it.

Cheers

Russell
