Despray an index file for backup

Questions around writing code and queries

Tue Feb 08, 2022 3:39 pm Change Time Zone

We have a situation where we have a multipart index in a Roxie cluster that we want to backup. Is there a way we can despray the index into landing zone and bring up a new cluster and respray it there. If not, are there any suggestions? We are on the cloud and we only have ephemeral storage and no access to NAS volumes.

Despray/re-spray to new cluster won't work with an index. I'd suggest you ramp up your "backup" cluster then try the Copy feature in ECL Watch and see if that will work for you.
