Question about restore backup configuration

NethServer Version: 7.3.1611
Module: Backup

Hello. Can the backup be restored after replacing the drive with a new one? Does the backup contain the RAID information? Will users and OpenVPN certificates also be restored?

Hi @pablo,

I can’t test it at the moment. Normally RAID is configured at install so I think it’s not overwritten by restore process. But I am NOT sure.

Yes, see Backup — NethServer 7 Final.

Correct. RAID is created before the restore.

If the system has only and drive which is defective, you replace the disk, install nethserver from scratch and restore the backup.
If your new system has two drives, install in raid1 mode, please.


Thank you for your answer. I would like to test it because I got a critical condition on one disk.

It looks like all settings have been restored correctly. I am very satisfied. Very good job!


Can you mark the answer as solution please.
