In your existing setup, steps to upgrade OS and restore backup
- Take all table, config backup, and alert archival separately.
- copy the backup files to remote storage and upgrade the OS.
- install the same version of NSM.
- Restore all table backup.
- post restore if historical alerts are missing, perform solr import.
Dear Faizan, Thanks for your support. Now let me know that how I can take config backup and alert archival?
I have taken ALL Tables Backup from NSM already and that size is around 24 GB Now Will I take config and alert archival backup as well? and how I can take these backup?
Alert archival and config backup are for precautions. If all table backup restore is successful no other restoration is required.
Information on alert archival:
Taking config backup is same as all table backup. Select config backup from drop down instead of All table.
Please restore all table backup.
Post backup restoration if you don't find historical alerts perform solr import.
