I am currently working on backing up MIQ. I had tried VDP as well as database dump on sql but noticed if during the backup process process, if I did not stop EVM processes, the database will be defunct.
In Darga, most of the operations is done via appliance_console, rake evm:stop and evm:start do not seemed to work (it may be because I have not export the environment variable properly).
May I know what is the correct way for me to add the following in a scripted way:
- stop evm processes
- start evm processes
- stop postgresql db
- start postgresql db
What is the recommended way to backup my MIQ environment? Thanks.
