Command: ubos-admin backup
To see the supported options, invoke
ubos-admin backup --help.
This command must be run as root (
sudo ubos-admin backup).
There are many variations of this command. Regardless of which variation of the command is used, UBOS generally performs the following actions:
"retentionpolicy" : "keep", "retentionbucket" : "name"
The actual backup performed depends on the type of AppConfigItem. For example, a MySQL database will be dumped, and the resulting dump file will be added to the backup.
The individually exported items, and certain meta-data are assembled in a UBOS backup file.
If the user requested encryption of the backup, the entire backup file will be encrypted with GPG.
Depending on the data transfer protocol specified, the resulting file will either be moved into the desired location on the local device, or transferred over the network to a remote host with the specified host and parameters.
