Restoring management database from backup

You can restore a management node database from backup on the same management node or any node in the storage cluster.


  • If management node high availability is enabled, you cannot restore database backups by using the script. In this case, contact the technical support team.
  • The vstorage-ui-backend service must be running on a single node in the storage cluster. If the management node database is restored on a different node, the previous management node must be re-deployed.


To restore a management node database from backup

Run the following script on the node where the MN database will be restored:

/usr/libexec/vstorage-ui-backend/bin/ -x <public_net_iface> -i <private_net_iface> \
-f /mnt/vstorage/webcp/backup/<backup_file>


  • The <public_net_iface> and <private_net_iface> are interfaces assigned the public and private networks. If required, you can specify the same network interface in both parameters.
  • The -f option specifies the path to the backup file. If omitted, the management node database will be restored from the latest backup.

For example, if the network interface eth0 is connected to the Public network, the network interface eth1 is connected to the Private network, and you want to restore the management node database from the backup backup-20211026000001.tar, run:

# /usr/libexec/vstorage-ui-backend/bin/ -x eth0 -i eth1 \
-f /mnt/vstorage/webcp/backup/backup-20211026000001.tar

To access the admin panel, use the public IP address of the node with the restored MN database.
