C.2.35. Backup/Restore is not bringing my host back to normal

Last Updated: 2013-11-01

Condition or Error

A backup/restore was performed as requested, but the host is still not coming up.


  • When you backup a node, the backup is stored on that physical server. The correct backup file from an active server should be used on the host being restored.


  • You can use that backup to restore another server in two ways:

    • If the backup directory is shared between servers using NFS or a clustered file system, the commands will work like you tried.

    • You must copy the backup files between nodes. See Section 5.11.3, “Restoring from Another Slave” for instructions on that.
