How to backup the Readability On-Premise data

 

Using a Virtual Machine backup facility

If you have VisibleThread Readability deployed on a Virtual Server or Virtual Machine you can use your existing VM backup facility to backup the server image. Examples of common VM backup utilities include Veeam and Commvault. These will take an image of the Readability Server and store with the rest of your server backups.

 

Using the VisibleThread Readability backup utility

Alternatively you can use the VisibleThread Readability backup script to create a backup file on the server that contains a point in time backup of the application data and configuration.

To run this backup script:

 

  1.  Open an ssh session to the Readability Server
  2. After logging in, type the following commands:

Ubuntu Virtual Appliance Deployments

cd /home/visiblethread/VisibleThreadTools 
./vt-backup.sh

This will create a .tar.gz file and place it in the '/home/visiblethread/VisibleThreadTools/vtbackups' directory

 Red Hat Deployments

cd /opt/visiblethread/VisibleThreadTools 
./vt-backup.sh

This will create a .tar.gz file and place it in the '/opt/visiblethread/VisibleThreadTools/vtbackups' directory

 

Restoring a VisibleThread Readability backup

To restore a backup made using the VisibleThread Readability backup utility take the following steps:

Ubuntu Virtual Appliance Deployments

cd /home/visiblethread/VisibleThreadTools
./vt-restore.sh <backup filename>

Red Hat Deployments

cd /opt/visiblethread/VisibleThreadTools
./vt-restore.sh <backup filename>

 

 

This will shutdown the application and restore the backup.
