Backing up MC

Before you upgrade MC, Vertica recommends that you back up your MC metadata (configuration and user settings). Use a storage location external to the server on which you installed MC.

  1. On the target server (where you want to store MC metadata), log in as root or a user with sudo privileges.

  2. Create a backup directory as in following example:

    # mkdir /backups/mc/mc-backup-20130425
  3. Copy the /opt/vconsole directory to the new backup folder:

    # cp –r /opt/vconsole /backups/mc/mc-backup-20130425
