Restore object from backup to an alternate cluster


; This sample vbr configuration file shows object restore to another cluster from an existing full or object backup.
; To restore objects from an existing backup(object or full), you must use the "--restore-objects" vbr command line option.
; Section headings are enclosed by square brackets.
; Comments have leading semicolons (;) or pound signs (#).
; An equal sign separates options and values.
; Specify arguments marked '!!Mandatory!!' explicitly.
; All commented parameters are set to their default value.

; ------------------------------------------- ;
; ------------------------------------------- ;

; There must be one [Mapping] section for all of the nodes in your database cluster.
; !!Mandatory!! Backup host name (no default) and Backup directory (no default)
; node_name = backup_host:backup_dir
v_exampledb_node0001 = backup_host0001:/home/dbadmin/backups
v_exampledb_node0002 = backup_host0002:/home/dbadmin/backups
v_exampledb_node0003 = backup_host0003:/home/dbadmin/backups
v_exampledb_node0004 = backup_host0004:/home/dbadmin/backups

; !!Recommended!! This section is required when performing an object restore from a full/object backup to a different cluster and node names are different between source (backup) and destination (restoring) databases.
v_sourcedb_node0001 = v_exampledb_node0001
v_sourcedb_node0002 = v_exampledb_node0002
v_sourcedb_node0003 = v_exampledb_node0003
v_sourcedb_node0004 = v_exampledb_node0004

; !!Recommended!! If you have more than one database defined on this Vertica cluster, use this parameter to specify which database to backup/restore.
; dbName = current_database

; If this parameter is True, vbr prompts the user for database password every time.
; If False, specify location of password config file in 'passwordFile' parameter in [Misc] section.
; dbPromptForPassword = True

; ------------------------------------------- ;
; ------------------------------------------- ;

; !!Recommended!! Snapshot name.
; SnapshotName is useful for monitoring and troubleshooting.
; Valid characters: a-z A-Z 0-9 - _
; snapshotName = backup_snapshot

; Specifies how Vertica handles objects of the same name when restoring schema or table backups.  Options are coexist, createOrReplace or create.
; objectRestoreMode = createOrReplace

; The temp directory location on all database hosts.
; The directory must be readable and writeable by the dbadmin, and must implement POSIX style fcntl lockf locking.
; tempDir = /tmp/vbr

; Full path to the password configuration file.
; Store this file in a directory only readable by the dbadmin.
; (no default)
; passwordFile = /path/to/vbr/pw.txt

; When enabled, Vertica confirms that the specified backup locations contain
; sufficient free space and inodes to allow a successful backup. If a backup
; location has insufficient resources, Vertica displays an error message and
; cancels the backup. If Vertica cannot determine the amount of available space
; or number of inodes in the backupDir, it displays a warning and continues
; with the backup.
; enableFreeSpaceCheck = True

; Sets options for transmitting the data when using backup hosts.

; Specifies the default port number for the rsync protocol.
; port_rsync = 50000

; The total bandwidth limit for all restore connections in KBPS, 0 for unlimited
; total_bwlimit_restore = 0

; The maximum number of backup TCP rsync connection threads per node.
; Optimum settings depend on your particular environment.
; For best performance, experiment with values between 2 and 16.
; concurrency_restore = 1

; Vertica user name for vbr to connect to the database.
; This setting is rarely needed since dbUser is normally identical to the database administrator.
; dbUser = current_username
