How to Back Up the Cluster Configuration

To ensure that your cluster configuration is archived and to facilitate easy recovery of the your cluster configuration, periodically back up your cluster configuration. Oracle Solaris Cluster provides the ability to export your cluster configuration to an eXtensible Markup Language (XML) file.

  1. Log on to any node in the cluster, and assume a role that provides solaris.cluster.read authorization.
  2. Export the cluster configuration information to a file.
    # cluster export -o configfile

    The name of the XML configuration file that the cluster command is exporting the cluster configuration information to. For information about the XML configuration file, see the clconfiguration(7CL) man page.

  3. Verify that the cluster configuration information was successfully exported to the XML file.
    # pfedit configfile
