      Description

      As a devops engineer I would like to have scripts which fully automate backup and restore procedures. In concrete terms this means that our backup / restore tools should have modes which are script friendly.

      Acceptance criteria:

      The best way to determine whether this issue can be closed is to provide our own sample scripts for common administration tasks. These scripts could form the basis of backup/restore tooling in K8S:

      • a script which, given a list of backends, performs a zero down-time backup of the backends to a file-system local to the DS instance and reports when the backup has completed, along with completion status
      • a script which, given a list of backends, restores the latest backup for each from a file-system local to the DS instance and reports when the backup has completed, along with completion status. It's likely that this script will be run automatically as part of an init container (TBC)
      • a script which removes backups older than a certain date. See OPENDJ-1310.
