Cisco Unified CM Disaster Recovery System

Disaster Recovery System

The Disaster Recovery System (DRS), which can be invoked from Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, provides full data backup and restore capabilities for all servers in a Cisco Unified Communications Manager cluster. The Disaster Recovery System allows you to perform regularly scheduled automatic or user-invoked data backups.

The Disaster Recovery System performs a cluster-level backup, which means that it collects backups for all servers in a Cisco Unified Communications Manager cluster to a central location and archives the backup data to physical storage device.

DRS restores its own settings (backup device settings and schedule settings) as part of the platform backup/restore. DRS backs up and restores the drfDevice.xml and drfSchedule.xml files. When the server is restored with these files, you do not need to reconfigure DRS backup device and schedule.


Caution


Before you restore Cisco Unified Communications Manager, ensure that the Cisco Unified Communications Manager version that is installed on the server matches the version of the backup file that you want to restore. The Disaster Recovery System supports only matching versions of Cisco Unified Communications Manager for restore. For example, the Disaster Recovery System does not allow a restore from version 8.6.1.20000-1 to version 8.6.2.20000-2, or from version 8.6.2.20000-2 to 8.6.2.21900-5.



Caution


Before running a backup or restore, make sure that all cluster nodes are running the same version of Cisco Unified Communications Manager. If different nodes are running different versions of Cisco Unified Communications Manager, you will end up with a certificate mismatch and your backup or restore could fail.



Caution


Before you restore Cisco Unified Communications Manager, ensure that the hostname, IP address, DNS configuration, version, and deployment type of the restore matches the hostname, IP address, DNS configuration, version, and deployment type of the backup file that you want to restore.


When performing a system data restoration, you can choose which nodes in the cluster you want to restore.

The Disaster Recovery System includes the following capabilities:

  • A user interface for performing backup and restore tasks.
  • A distributed system architecture for performing backup and restore functions.
  • Scheduled backups.
  • Archive backups to a physical tape drive or remote SFTP server.

The Disaster Recovery System contains two key functions, Master Agent (MA) and Local Agent (LA). The Master Agent coordinates backup and restore activity with Local Agents.

The system automatically activates both the Master Agent and the Local Agent on all nodes in the cluster.


Caution


DRS encryption depends on the cluster security password. If you change this security password through the Command Line Interface or a fresh install, then it is recommended that you take a fresh backup immediately or remember the old security password.



Note


The Disaster Recovery Systemuses an SSL-based communication between the Master Agent and the Local Agent for authentication and encryption of data between the Cisco Unified Communications Manager cluster nodes. DRS makes use of the IPSec certificates for its Public/Private Key encryption. Be aware that if you delete the IPSEC truststore(hostname.pem) file from the Certificate Management pages, then DRS will not work as expected. If you delete the IPSEC-trust file manually, then you must ensure that you upload the IPSEC certificate to the IPSEC-trust. For more details, refer to the certificate management help pages in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Security Guides.



Note


The Disaster Recovery System does not migrate data from Windows to Linux or from Linux to Linux. A restore must run on the same product version as the backup. For information on data migration from a Windows-based platform to a Linux-based platform, refer to the Data Migration Assistant User Guide.



Caution


Schedule backups during off-peak hours to avoid call-processing interruptions and impact to service.



Caution


When you restore your data, the hostname, server IP address, and the deployment type must be the same as it was during the backup. DRS does not restore across different hostnames, IP addresses and deployment types.


Quick-reference tables for backup and restore procedures

The following tables provide a quick reference for the backup and restore procedures.


Note


DRS backs up and restores the drfDevice.xml and drfSchedule.xml files. These backup device settings and schedule settings get restored as a part of the platform backup/restore. After the server is restored with these files, you do not need to reconfigure DRS backup device and schedule.


Backup quick reference

Table 1 provides a quick, high-level reference to the major steps, in chronological order, that you must perform to do a backup procedure by using the Disaster Recovery System.

    Restore quick reference

    Table 2 provides a quick, high-level reference to the major steps, in chronological order, that you must perform to do a restore procedure by using the Disaster Recovery System.


    Note


    The Disaster Recovery System does not migrate data from Windows to Linux or from Linux to Linux. A restore must run on the same product version as the backup. For information on data migration from a Windows-based platform to a Linux-based platform, refer to the Data Migration Assistant User Guide before following the steps in Table 1.


    Procedure
      Step 1   Choose Storage Location—You must first choose the storage location from which you want to restore a backup file. Restore node or cluster to last known good configuration
      Step 2   Choose the Backup File—From a list of available files, choose the backup file that you want to restore. Restore node or cluster to last known good configuration
      Step 3   Choose Features—From the list of available features, choose the features that you want to restore. Restore node or cluster to last known good configuration
      Step 4   Choose Nodes—If the feature was backed up from multiple nodes, you must choose the nodes that you want to restore. Restore node or cluster to last known good configuration
      Step 5   Choose Data Source—When you restore a first node (publisher), restore Cisco Unified Communications Manager data from a good subsequent node (subscriber) to ensure that you are using current data.

      Restore the first node only

      Step 6   Check the Status of the Restore—While the restore process is running, you can check the status of the current restore job.

      Check current restore job status


      Supported features and components

      Disaster Recovery System can back up and restore the following components. The system backs up all of its components automatically.

      • Cisco Unified Communications Manager database (CCMDB), includes Cisco Unified Communications Manager/CDR Analysis and Reporting/Call Detail Records)
      • Platform
      • Music On Hold (MOH) Audio Files
      • BAT Bulk Provisioning Service (BPS)
      • CCM Preference Files (CCMPREFS)
      • TFTP Phone device files (TFTP)
      • SNMP Syslog Component (SYSLOGAGT SNMP)
      • SNMP CDP Subagent (CDPAGT SNMP)
      • Trace Collection Tool (TCT)
      • Cluster Manager (CLM)
      • Cisco Extended Functions (CEF)

      System requirements

      To back up data to a remote device on the network, you must have an SFTP server that is configured. Cisco allows you to use any SFTP server product but recommends SFTP products that have been certified with Cisco Technology Partners. Technology partners, such as GlobalSCAPE, certify their products with specified versions of Cisco Unified Communications Manager. For information on which vendors have certified their products with your version of Cisco Unified Communications Manager, refer to the Solutions Catalog on the Cisco Developer Network. The Solutions Catalog is accessible at:

      https://marketplace.cisco.com/catalog/search

      For information on using GlobalSCAPE with supported Cisco Unified Communications versions, refer to the following URL:

      http://www.globalscape.com/gsftps/cisco.aspx

      Cisco uses the following servers for internal testing. You may use one of the servers, but you must contact the vendor for support:

      Cisco does not support using the SFTP product freeFTDP. This is because of the 1 GB file size limit on this SFTP product.


      Note


      For issues with third-party products that have not been certified through the CTDP process, contact the third-party vendor for support



      Note


      While a backup or restore is running, you cannot perform any OS Administration tasks because Disaster Recovery System blocks all OS Administration requests by locking the platform API. However, this does not block most CLI commands as only the CLI-based upgrade commands use the Platform API locking package.



      Tip


      Schedule backups during periods when you expect less network traffic.



      Note


      Be aware that if you migrate to an HP DL380-G6 server (software-only), you will not be able to install older versions of Cisco Unified Communications Manager (5.x and 6.x) on the new server. Therefore, to be able to run a DRS backup, you must install the older version of Cisco Unified Communications Manager on your old publisher (which may no longer be supported). Once this backup has been completed, you will be able to restore it on your HP DL380-G6 (software-only) publisher.


      Disaster Recovery System access

      To access the Disaster Recovery System, choose Disaster Recovery System from the Navigation drop-down list box in the upper, right corner of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration window. Log in to the Disaster Recovery System by using the same Administrator username and password that you use for Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration.


      Note


      You set the Administrator username and password during Cisco Unified Communications Manager installation, and you can change the Administrator password or set up a new Administrator account by using the Command Line Interface (CLI). Refer to the Command Line Interface Reference Guide for Cisco Unified Communications Solutions for more information.


      Master Agent duties and activation

      The system automatically activates the Master Agent (MA) on the server.

      The system automatically starts the Master Agent service on each node of the cluster, but the Master Agent is functional only on the First node. The Master Agents on the subsequent nodes do not perform any functions.

      Master Agent functions

      The Master Agent (MA) performs the following duties:

      • The MA stores system-wide component registration information.
      • The MA maintains a complete set of scheduled tasks in an XML file. The MA updates this file when it receives updates of schedules from the user interface. The MA sends executable tasks to the applicable Local Agents, as scheduled. (Local Agents execute immediate-backup tasks without delay.)
      • You access the MA through the Disaster Recovery System user interface to perform activities such as configuring backup devices, scheduling backups by adding new backup schedules, viewing or updating an existing schedule, displaying status of executed schedules, and performing system restoration.
      • The MA stores backup data on a locally attached tape drive or a remote network location.

      Local Agents

      The server has a Local Agent to perform backup and restore functions.

      Each server in a Cisco Unified Communications Manager cluster, including the server that contains the Master Agent, must have its own Local Agent to perform backup and restore functions for its server.


      Note


      By default, a Local Agent automatically gets activated on each node of the cluster.


      Local Agent functions

      The Local Agent runs backup and restore scripts on the server.

      In a cluster, the Local Agent runs backup and restore scripts on each node in the cluster.


      Note


      The Disaster Recovery System uses an SSL-based communication between the Master Agent and the Local Agent for authentication and encryption of data between the Cisco Unified Communications Manager cluster nodes. DRS makes use of the IPSec certificates for its Public/Private Key encryption. This certificate exchange gets handled internally. You do not need to make any configuration changes to accommodate this exchange.


      Configure backup devices

      Before using the Disaster Recovery System, you must configure the locations where you want the backup files to be stored. You can configure up to 10 backup devices. Perform the following steps to configure backup devices.


      Note


      You can add, delete, and list devices through the Command Line Interface. For more information on CLI commands for DRS, refer to the Command-Line Interface.


      Procedure
        Step 1   Navigate to the Disaster Recovery System. Log in to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, choose Disaster Recovery System from the Navigation menu in the upper, right corner of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration window, and click Go.

        The Disaster Recovery System Logon window displays.

        Step 2   Log in to the Disaster Recovery System by using the same Administrator username and password that you use for Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration.
        Step 3   Navigate to Backup > Backup Device. The Backup Device List window displays.
        Step 4   To configure a new backup device, click Add New.
        Step 5   To edit a backup device, select it in the Backup Device list. Then, click Edit Selected.

        The Backup Device window displays.

        Step 6   Enter the backup device name in the Backup device name field.
        Note   

        The backup device name may contain only alphanumeric characters, spaces ( ), dashes (-) and underscores (_). Do not use any other characters.

        Step 7   Choose one of the following backup devices and enter the appropriate field values in the Select Destination area:
        1. Tape Device—Stores the backup file on a locally attached tape drive. Choose the appropriate tape device from the list.
          Note   

          Be aware that you cannot span tapes or store more than one backup per tape.

          Note   

          Be aware that if you are logged in through a VMware virtual machine, you cannot back up on a tape. This is because the tape device option is disabled for VMware users.

        2. Network Directory—Stores the backup file on a network drive that is accessed through an SFTP connection. DRS only supports SFTP servers that are configured with an IPv4 address or hostname/Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN). Enter the following required information:
          • Server name: Name or IP address of the network server
          • Path name: Path name for the directory where you want to store the backup file
          • User name: Valid username for an account on the remote system
          • Password: Valid password for the account on the remote system
          • Number of backups to store on Network Directory: The number of backups to store on this network directory.
          Note   

          You must have access to an SFTP server to configure a network storage location. The SFTP path must exist prior to the backup. The account that is used to access the SFTP server must have write permission for the selected path.

        Step 8   To update these settings, click Save.
        Note   

        After you click the Save button, the DRS Master Agent validates the selected backup device. If the user name, password, server name, or directory path is invalid, the save will fail.

        Step 9   To delete a backup device, select it in the Backup Device list. Then, click Delete Selected.
        Note   

        You cannot delete a backup device that is configured as the backup device in a backup schedule.


        Create and edit backup schedules

        You can create up to 10 backup schedules. Each backup schedule has its own set of properties, including a schedule for automatic backups, the set of features to back up, and a storage location.


        Note


        You can list and add backup schedules through the Command Line Interface. For more information on CLI commands for DRS, refer to the Command-Line Interface.



        Note


        Be aware that your backup .tar files are encrypted by a randomly generated password. This password is then encrypted by using the cluster security password and gets saved along with the backup .tar files. You must remember this security password or take a backup immediately after the security password change/reset.



        Caution


        Schedule backups during off-peak hours to avoid call-processing interruptions and impact to service.

            Estimate size of backup tar

            Follow this procedure to estimate the size of the backup tar performed on an SFTP device.


            Note


            Be aware that the calculated size is not an exact value but an estimated size of the backup tar. Size is calculated based on the actual backup size of a previous successful backup and may vary if the configuration changed since the last backup. Also, this procedure does not estimate the size of a backup performed on a tape device.



            Note


            Be aware that if no backup history exists for one or more of the selected features, Cisco Unified Communications Manager cannot estimate the size of the backup tar.


            Procedure
              Step 1   Sign in to the Disaster Recovery System by using the same administrator username and password that you use for Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration.
              Step 2   Select the Backup > Manual Backup menu.

              Note


              Be aware that your backup .tar files are encrypted by a randomly generated password. This password is then encrypted by using the cluster security password and gets saved along with the backup .tar files. You must remember this security password or take a backup immediately after the security password change/reset.



              Note


              Before running a backup, make sure that all cluster nodes are running the same version of Cisco Unified Communications Manager. If different nodes are running different versions of Cisco Unified Communications Manager, you will end up with a certificate mismatch and your backup could fail.



              Caution


              Be aware that because of “no space in remote server” or “interruptions in network connectivity” or any other reason, the backup process could fail. Address the reasons that caused the backup to fail and then start a fresh backup.


              Procedure
                Step 1   Navigate to the Disaster Recovery System. Log in to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, choose Disaster Recovery System from the Navigation menu in the upper, right corner of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration window, and click Go.

                  The backup cancels after the current component completes its backup operation.


                  Restore scenarios


                  Caution


                  Be aware that DRS encryption depends on the cluster security password. If you have changed the security password between the backup and this restore, DRS will ask for the old security password. Therefore, to use such old backups, you must remember the old security password or take a backup immediately after the security password change/reset.



                  Caution


                  Do not make any configuration changes to Cisco Unified Communications Manager during a restore. Configuration changes include any changes that you make in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, Cisco Unified Serviceability, and the User Option windows.



                  Caution


                  Do not perform any configuration tasks until the restore completes on all servers in the cluster, and until you have verified that database replication is functioning.



                  Note


                  When you perform a DRS restore to migrate data to a new server, you must assign the new server the identical IP address and host name that the old server used. Additionally, if DNS was configured when the backup was taken, then a working DNS configuration must be present prior to performing a restore.



                  Note


                  For more information about replacing a server, refer to the Replacing a Single Server or Cluster for Cisco Unified Communications Manager guide.



                  Note


                  Before running a DRS restore, make sure that all cluster nodes are running the same version of Cisco Unified Communications Manager. If different nodes are running different versions of Cisco Unified Communications Manager, you will end up with a certificate mismatch and your restore could fail.



                  Tip


                  Beginning with Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 8.0(1), there is only one upgrade scenario in which you must run the Certificate Trust List (CTL) client after a hardware replacement. You must run the CTL client if you do not restore the subsequent node (subscriber) servers. In other cases, DRS backs up the certificates that you need.



                  Tip


                  For more information, see the "Installing the CTL Client" and "Configuring the CTL Client" procedures in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Security Guide.


                  You can restore Cisco Unified Communications Manager in the following scenarios:

                  Restore node or cluster to last known good configuration


                  Note


                  Use this procedure only if you are restoring the node to a last known good configuration. Do not use this after a hard drive failure or other hardware failure. If you intend to rebuild the publisher server, read the Restore the first node only. If you intend to rebuild the entire cluster, read the Restore entire cluster.



                  Note


                  Extension Mobility Cross Cluster users who logged in to a remote cluster at backup shall remain logged in after restore.



                  Caution


                  Before you restore Cisco Unified Communications Manager, ensure that the Cisco Unified Communications Manager version that is installed on the server matches the version of the backup file that you want to restore. The Disaster Recovery System supports only matching versions of Cisco Unified Communications Manager for restore. For example, For example, the Disaster Recovery System does not allow a restore from version 8.6.1.20000-1 to version 8.6.2.20000-2, or from version 8.6.2.20000-2 to 8.6.2.21900-5. (The last parts of the version number change when you install a service release or an engineering special.) In essence, the product version needs to match, end-to-end, for the Disaster Recovery System to run a successful Cisco Unified Communications Manager database restore. Disaster Recovery System adheres to strict version checking and allows restore only between matching versions of Cisco Unified Communications Manager.



                  Caution


                  Before you restore Cisco Unified Communications Manager, ensure that the hostname, IP address, DNS configuration, and deployment type of the restore matches the hostname, IP address, DNS configuration, and deployment type of the backup file that you want to restore. DRS does not restore across different hostnames, IP addresses, DNS configurations and deployment types.


                  The Restore Wizard walks you through the steps that are required to restore a backup file. To perform a restore, use the procedure that follows.

                  Procedure
                    Step 1   Navigate to the Disaster Recovery System. Log in to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, choose Disaster Recovery System from the Navigation menu in the upper, right corner of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration window, and click Go.

                    The Disaster Recovery System Logon window displays.

                    Step 2   Log in to the Disaster Recovery System by using the same Administrator username and password that you use for Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration.
                    Step 3   Navigate to Restore > Restore Wizard. The Restore Wizard Step 1 window displays.
                    Step 4   Choose the backup device from which to restore in the Select Backup Device area. Then, click Next.

                    The Restore Wizard Step 2 window displays.

                    Step 5   Choose the backup file that you want to restore.
                    Note   

                    The backup filename indicates the date and time that the system created the backup file.

                    Step 6   Click Next. The Restore Wizard Step 3 window displays.
                    Step 7   Choose the features that you want to restore.
                    Note   

                    Only the features that were backed up to the file that you chose display.

                    Step 8   Click Next. The Restore Wizard Step 4 window displays.
                    Step 9   Select the Perform file integrity check using SHA1 Message Digest checkbox if you want to run a file integrity check.
                    Note   

                    The file integrity check is optional and is only required in the case of SFTP backups. You do not need to run a file integrity check when restoring from tape and local device backups.

                    Note   

                    Be aware that the file integrity check process consumes a significant amount of CPU and network bandwidth, which considerably slows down the restore process.

                    Step 10   (Optional) If the node that you chose is a publisher node, from the Select Server Name drop-down list box, choose the subscriber node from which you want to restore the publisher database. The Disaster Recovery System restores all nondatabase information from the backup file and pulls the latest database from the chosen subscriber node.
                    Note   

                    This option appears only if the backup file that you selected includes the CCMDB database component and if the node that you chose is a publisher node.

                    Step 11   When you get prompted to choose the node to restore, choose the appropriate node.
                    Step 12   To start restoring the data, click Restore.
                    Note   

                    If you selected the Perform file integrity check using SHA1 Message Digest checkbox in Step 9, DRS runs a file integrity check on each file when you click Restore. If the system finds discrepancies in any .tar file during the check, the restore process will ERROR out the component that failed the integrity check and move to restore the next .tar file (that is, the next component).

                    Caution   

                    After you choose the node to which you want the data restored, any existing data on that server gets overwritten.

                    Note   

                    If you choose the first node to restore the data, DRS automatically restores the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database on the subsequent nodes. Read Restore the first node only for more details.

                    Step 13   Your data gets restored on the node that you chose. To view the status of the restore, see the Check current restore job status.
                    Step 14   Check the Replication Status value on all nodes by using the utils dbreplication status CLI command as described in the Command Line Interface Reference Guide for Cisco Unified Communications Solutions. The value on each node should equal 2.
                    Tip   

                    If replication does not set up properly, use the utils dbreplication reset CLI command as described in the Command Line Interface Reference Guide for Cisco Unifed Communications Solutions.

                    Step 15   If the database replication status is 2, restart the server. For more information on restarting, see the Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration Guide.
                    Note   

                    Cisco recommends that you do not restart the first node until the subsequent nodes are restored and restarted. See Steps 14 through 16 of the Restore subsequent cluster nodes for details.

                    Note   

                    Even if you are restoring only to the first node, you must restart all nodes in the cluster. Make sure that you restart the subsequent nodes before you restart the first node.

                    Note   

                    Depending on the size of your database and the components that you choose to restore, the system can require a few hours to restore.


                    Restore the first node only

                    Follow this procedure to restore the first node (publisher) server in the cluster.


                    Note


                    Cisco recommends that you perform a fresh installation of Cisco Unified Communications Manager on the first node. For more information on installing Cisco Unified Communications Manager, see Installing Cisco Unified Communications Manager.



                    Note


                    Extension Mobility Cross Cluster users who logged in to a remote cluster at backup shall remain logged in after restore.



                    Caution


                    Before you restore Cisco Unified Communications Manager, ensure that the Cisco Unified Communications Manager version that is installed on the server matches the version of the backup file that you want to restore. The Disaster Recovery System supports only matching versions of Cisco Unified Communications Manager for restore. For example, the Disaster Recovery System does not allow a restore from version 8.6.1.20000-1 to version 8.6.2.20000-2, or from version 8.6.2.20000-2 to 8.6.2.21900-5.



                    Caution


                    Before you restore Cisco Unified Communications Manager, ensure that the hostname, IP address, DNS configuration, and deployment type of the restore matches the hostname, IP address, DNS configuration, and deployment type of the backup file that you want to restore. DRS does not restore across different hostnames, IP addresses, DNS configurations, and deployment types.


                    Procedure
                      Step 1   Navigate to the Disaster Recovery System. Log in to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, choose Disaster Recovery System from the Navigation drop-down list box in the upper, right corner of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration window, and click Go.

                      The Disaster Recovery System Logon window displays.

                      Step 2   Log in to the Disaster Recovery System by using the same Administrator username and password that you use for Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration.
                      Step 3   Configure the backup device. For more information, see Configure backup devices.
                      Step 4   Navigate to Restore > Restore Wizard. The Restore Wizard Step 1 window displays.
                      Step 5   In the Select Backup Device area, choose the backup device from which to restore.
                      Step 6   Click Next. The Restore Wizard Step 2 window displays.
                      Step 7   Choose the backup file that you want to restore.
                      Note   

                      The backup filename indicates the date and time that the system created the backup file.

                      Step 8   Click Next. The Restore Wizard Step 3 window displays.
                      Step 9   Choose the features that you want to restore.
                      Note   

                      Only the features that were backed up to the file that you chose display.

                      Step 10   Click Next. The Restore Wizard Step 4 window displays.
                      Step 11   When you get prompted to choose the nodes to restore, choose only the first node (the publisher).
                      Caution   

                      Do not select the subsequent (subscriber) nodes in this condition as this will result in failure of the restore attempt.

                      Step 12   (Optional) From the Select Server Name drop-down list box, choose the subscriber node from which you want to restore the publisher database. The Disaster Recovery System restores all nondatabase information from the backup file and pulls the latest database from the chosen subscriber node.
                      Note   

                      This option appears only if the backup file that you selected includes the CCMDB database component. Initially, only the publisher node is fully restored, but when you perform Step 15 and restore the subsequent cluster nodes, the Disaster Recovery System performs database replication and fully synchronizes all cluster node databases. This ensures that all cluster nodes are using current data.

                      Note   

                      Make sure the subscriber node that you chose is up and connected to the cluster. A subscriber node can be added manually tothe cluster in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration (System > Server).

                      Step 13   To start restoring the data, click Restore.
                      Step 14   Your data gets restored on the publisher node. To view the status of the restore, see the Check current restore job status.
                      Note   

                      During the restore process, do not perform any tasks with Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration or User Options.

                      Note   

                      Restoring the first node restores the whole Cisco Unified Communications Manager database to the cluster. This may take up to several hours based on number of nodes and size of database that is being restored.

                      Step 15   If you are restoring just the publisher node, check the Replication Status value on all nodes by using the utils dbreplication runtime CLI command as described in the Command Line Interface Reference Guide for Cisco Unifed Communications Solutions. The value on each node should equal 2
                      Tip   

                      If replication does not set up properly, use the utils dbreplication reset CLI command as described in the Command Line Interface Reference Guide for Cisco Unifed Communications Solutions.

                      Step 16   When the restore status indicates 100 percent, continue with the Restore subsequent cluster nodes.
                      Note   

                      Depending on the size of your database and the components that you choose to restore, the system can require one hour or more to restore.


                      Restore entire cluster

                      If a major hard drive failure or upgrade occurs, or in the event of a hard drive migration, you may need to rebuild all nodes in the cluster. Follow these steps to restore an entire cluster:


                      Tip


                      If you are doing most other types of hardware upgrades, such as replacing a network card or adding memory, you do not need to perform the following procedure.



                      Note


                      You can restore the whole cluster as a single operation after you rebuild the publisher server and the subscriber servers, or to revert to a known good configuration. You do not need to restore the first node and the subsequent nodes in two separate operations.



                      Note


                      Extension Mobility Cross Cluster users who logged in to a remote cluster at backup shall remain logged in after restore.



                      Note


                      Before you restore a cluster, make sure that all nodes in the cluster are up and communicating with the first node. You must perform a fresh install for the nodes that are down or not communicating with first node at the time of the restore.


                      Procedure
                        Step 1   Navigate to the Disaster Recovery System. Log in to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, choose Disaster Recovery System from the Navigation drop-down list box in the upper, right corner of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration window, and click Go.

                        The Disaster Recovery System Logon window displays.

                        Step 2   Log in to the Disaster Recovery System by using the same Administrator username and password that you use for Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration.
                        Step 3   Configure the backup device. For more information, see Configure backup devices.
                        Step 4   Navigate to Restore > Restore Wizard. The Restore Wizard Step 1 window displays.
                        Step 5   In the Select Backup Device area, choose the backup device from which to restore.
                        Step 6   Click Next. The Restore Wizard Step 2 window displays.
                        Step 7   Choose the backup file that you want to restore.
                        Note   

                        The backup filename indicates the date and time that the system created the backup file.

                        Step 8   Click Next. The Restore Wizard Step 3 window displays.
                        Step 9   Choose the features that you want to restore.
                        Note   

                        Only the features that were backed up to the file that you chose display.

                        Step 10   Click Next. The Restore Wizard Step 4 window displays.
                        Step 11   When you get prompted to choose the nodes to restore, choose all the nodes in the cluster.
                        Note   

                        The Disaster Recovery System restores the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database (CCMDB) on subsequent nodes automatically when you restore a first node. This may take up to several hours based on number of nodes and size of that database that is being restored.

                        Note   

                        If a subsequent node is down or not connected to the cluster during the cluster restore, the database component restore will skip that node and proceed with the next one. You must perform a fresh install of Cisco Unified Communications Manager on these subsequent nodes.

                        Step 12   Your data gets restored on all the nodes of the cluster. To view the status of the restore, see the Check current restore job status.
                        Step 13   Restart the server. For more information on restarting, see the Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration Guide.
                        Note   

                        Depending on the size of your database and the components that you choose to restore, the system can require a few hours to restore.

                        Step 14   When the restoration completes and the Percentage Complete field on the Restore Status window in the Disaster Recovery System shows 100 percent, begin rebooting the subsequent nodes in the cluster.
                        Step 15   When all the subsequent nodes have rebooted and are running the restored version of Cisco Unified Communications Manager, reboot the first node.
                        Note   

                        Database replication on the subsequent nodes may take an hour or more to complete after the publisher reboots, depending on the size of the cluster.

                        Step 16   Check the Replication Status value on all nodes by using the utils dbreplication status CLI command as described in the Command Line Interface Reference Guide for Cisco Unifed Communications Solutions. The value on each node should equal 2.
                        Tip   

                        If replication does not set up properly, use the utils dbreplication reset CLI command as described in the Command Line Interface Reference Guide for Cisco Unifed Communications Solutions.


                        Restore subsequent cluster nodes

                        Follow this procedure to restore subsequent nodes in the cluster.


                        Note


                        Extension Mobility Cross Cluster users who logged in to a remote cluster at backup shall remain logged in after restore.



                        Caution


                        Before you restore Cisco Unified Communications Manager, ensure that the Cisco Unified Communications Manager version that is installed on the server matches the version of the backup file that you want to restore. The Disaster Recovery System supports only matching versions of Cisco Unified Communications Manager for restore. For example, the Disaster Recovery System does not allow a restore from version 8.6.1.20000-1 to version 8.6.2.20000-2, or from version 8.6.2.20000-2 to 8.6.2.21900-5.



                        Caution


                        Before you restore Cisco Unified Communications Manager, ensure that the hostname, IP address, DNS configuration, and deployment type of the restore matches the hostname, IP address, DNS configuration, and deployment type of the backup file that you want to restore. DRS does not restore across different hostnames, IP addresses, DNS configurations and deployment types.


                        Procedure
                          Step 1   Navigate to the Disaster Recovery System. Log in to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, choose Disaster Recovery System from the Navigation drop-down list box in the upper, right corner of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration window, and click Go.

                          Step 12   Your data gets restored on the subsequent nodes. To view the status of the restore, see the Check current restore job status.
                          Step 13   Restart the server. For more information on restarting, see the Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration Guide.
                          Note   

                          Database replication on the subsequent nodes may take an hour or more to complete after the publisher reboots, depending on the size of the cluster.

                          Step 14   Check the Replication Status value on all nodes by using the utils dbreplication status CLI command as described in the Command Line Interface Reference Guide for Cisco Unifed Communications Solutions. The value on each node should equal 2.
                          Tip   

                          If replication does not set up properly, use the utils dbreplication reset CLI command as described in the Command Line Interface Reference Guide for Cisco Unifed Communications Solutions.


                          Restore cluster in one step after publisher rebuilds

                          Follow this procedure to restore the entire cluster in one step if the Publisher has already been rebuilt.


                          Note


                          Cisco recommends that you perform a fresh installation of Cisco Unified Communications Manager on the first node. For more information on installing Cisco Unified Communications Manager, see Installing Cisco Unified Communications Manager.

                          Note


                          Extension Mobility Cross Cluster users who logged in to a remote cluster at backup shall remain logged in after restore.

                          Caution


                          Before you restore Cisco Unified Communications Manager, ensure that the Cisco Unified Communications Manager version that is installed on the server matches the version of the backup file that you want to restore. The Disaster Recovery System supports only matching versions of Cisco Unified Communications Manager for restore. For example, the Disaster Recovery System does not allow a restore from version 6.1.(1).1000-1 to version 6.1(2).1000-1, or from version 6.1.(2).1000-1 to version 6.1(2).1000-2.

                          Caution


                          Before you restore Cisco Unified Communications Manager, ensure that the hostname, IP address, and deployment type of the restore matches the hostname, IP address and deployment type of the backup file that you want to restore. DRS does not restore across different hostnames, IP addresses and deployment types.
                          Procedure

                            Step 11   Click One-Step Restore.
                            Note   

                            This option appears on Restore Wizard Step 4 window only if the backup file selected for restore is the backup file of the cluster and the features chosen for restore includes the feature(s) that is registered with both publisher and subscriber nodes.

                            Note   

                            This option allows the publisher to become cluster aware and will take five minutes to do so. Once you click on this option, a status message displays as “Please wait for 5 minutes until Publisher becomes cluster aware and do not start any backup or restore activity in this time period.”

                            Note   

                            After the delay, if the publisher becomes cluster aware, a status message displays as “Publisher has become cluster aware. Please select the servers and click on Restore to start the restore of entire cluster.”

                            Note   

                            After the delay, if the publisher has not become cluster aware, a status message displays as “Publisher has failed to become cluster aware. Cannot start one-step restore. Please go ahead and do a normal two-step restore.” For two-step restore go to Restoring the First Node only (Rebuilding the Publisher Alone), page 16.

                            Step 12   When you get prompted to choose the nodes to restore, choose all the nodes in the cluster.
                            Note    The Disaster Recovery System restores the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database (CCMDB) on subsequent nodes automatically when you restore a first node. This may take up to several hours based on number of nodes and size of that database that is being restored.
                            Step 13   To start restoring the data, click Restore.
                            Step 14   Your data gets restored on all the nodes of the cluster. To view the status of the restore, see Viewing the Restore Status, page 24.
                            Note    Depending on the size of your database and the components that you choose to restore, the system can require a few hours to restore.
                            Step 15   When the restoration completes and the Percentage Complete field on the Restore Status window in the Disaster Recovery System shows 100 percent, you can start rebooting the subsequent nodes in the cluster.
                            Step 16   When all the subsequent nodes have rebooted, and are running the restored version of Cisco Unified Communications Manager, reboot the first node.
                            Note    Database replication on the subsequent nodes may take an hour or more to complete after the publisher reboots, depending on the size of the cluster.
                            Step 17   Use the utils dbreplication status CLI command as described in the Command Line Reference Guide for Cisco Unified Communications Solutions to check the replication status value on all nodes. The value on each node should equal 2.
                            Note    To do a two-step restore, perform the steps mentioned in Restoring the First Node only (Rebuilding the Publisher Alone), page 16.
                            Tip   

                            If replication does not set up properly, use the utils dbreplication reset CLI command as described in the Command Line Interface Reference Guide for Cisco Unifed Communications Solutions.
