Parallels Virtuozzo Containers (PVC) backups can be created using the vzbackup utility, run on the Backup Node. You can restore any backup using the vzrestore utility.
To configure vzbackup, do the following:
Check the global vzbackup configuration file /etc/vzbackup.conf on the Backup Node for backup parameters (pay attention to the $BACKUP_DIR parameter).
If you are going to make backups using cronjob, set the following parameters:
# Backup directory - where the backups will be stored, e.g
# backup type. Supported types are "full", "initial incremental" and
# "incremental". Default is incremental. If it is impossible to do
# "incremental" then "initial incremental" will be done.
# Backup cron mode
# List of nodes to backup.
# e-mails to send notifications on backup
Create this directory:
# mkdir /vz/backups
Add the following command to the crontab on the Backup Node:
# vzbackup -i -p -a
- Make sure the root user of the Backup Node is able to access all Hardware Nodes without a password (propagate SSH DSA public keys).
