Cold Backup in XO
Dear colleagues, I need to perform "offline backup" or "cold backup" on XO.
I have no local storage space for backup generation from snapshot.
Therefore, I am having difficulty configuring XO for this type of backup.
Any options on "Backup NG" to run?
- turn off vm
- backup execution
- enable vm
I can create three tasks for this in "JOBs". But I think this is not a good practice.
This feature was implemented few releases ago if I remember correctly.
This is what you are looking for I think: https://xen-orchestra.com/blog/xen-orchestra-5-40/#offlinebackup
Hello friends! Oliver and Marc.
This is exactly it! So am I using too old version?
I forgot to mention the version I'm using.
Or this was supported only on older versions. Marc, the article above is talking about version 4.40
Would the "offline backup" function only be supported in previous versions?
It's supported in XOA since 5.40 and all more recent releases. Just tick the checkbox and that's it
