Issue

The feature described in this article provides the capability to backup and restore the configuration information. This feature depends on a number of other modules.

  1. It saves the generated backup files on the root volumes.
  2. It relies on cluster jobs to create cluster backup archives.
  3. It uses an FR service to copy the backup archives among the nodes in the cluster.
  4. It creates root volume snapshots when creating backup archives.

If any of these dependent modules fail, this feature will fail its functionality.
