Description

Data Protector uses scripts to perform backup and restore of Nutanix AHV VMs. These scripts are used as pre/post- execution scripts in the filesystem backup specification. These scripts use the Nutanix REST APIs to carry out the VM management operations (snapshot, backup, restore, etc). The latest version of the package 10.91(2021.02) has been approved by Nutanix as being Nutanix Ready AHV INTEGRATED in Data Protection.

During the backup, the pre-exec script creates a live external snapshot of the AHV VMs and mounts it on the backup proxy. These snapshots and mount points can then be backed up with a filesystem backup or Disk Image backup.

• If backup is taken at file level, then individual files can be restored on the backup proxy.

• If backup is taken as disk-image, then only full VM can be restored using the restore scripts.

During the backup, post-exec scripts are used for cleanup of snapshot and temporary files. During the image level restore, the post-exec scripts are used for restoring the raw data.

Prerequisites

The following prerequisites apply:

  • Ensure that the Data Protector Cell Manager is of version 2019.05 or higher versions.
  • Ensure that the scripts are used with a Cell Manager running on a supported Linux platform.
  • Ensure that the below RPM are installed on Linux backup proxy:
    • Jq
    • ntfs-3g
  • Ensure to create a file system mount point in backup proxy. The mount point is used to store the configuration data during the backup and restore. This mount point should be a filesystem directory on Linux mount proxy host with appropriate permission. This mount point needs to be mentioned against the $CONF variable, referred in Nutanix_config.sh sctipt.
  • Ensure that the Nutanix_config.sh script is edited before running the backup.
  • Ensure that the backup proxy is imported to the Cell Manager.
  • Ensure to delete all snapshots before taking a backup. This rule does not apply to the backup proxy as it will not be backed up by Data Protector.
