Restoring the System to a Snapshot

 

The process to restore a system to a snapshot differs depending on whether you are using a Junos Space VM or a Junos Space Appliance.

To restore a system snapshot when using a Junos Space Virtual Appliance:

  1. Select Administration > Fabric. Click the System Snapshot icon.
  2. Click Restore.
  3. Click OK.
  4. Log in to the ESX servers and power on the virtual machine after a few minutes.
Note

If the Junos Space GUI is not accessible on a virtual machine, you can restore the fabric by shutting down every node in the fabric and logging in to ESX servers where the virtual machine is located.

To restore a system snapshot when using a Junos Space Appliance:

  1. Select Administration > Fabric. Click the System Snapshot icon.
  2. Click Restore.

    The System Restore Instruction for Appliance dialog box appears.

  3. Follow the instructions on this dialog box.
  4. Click OK.
Note

You may not be able to restore the system to a snapshot if one of the following conditions is true:

  • One of the nodes is down.

  • New nodes were added after a snapshot was created. A warning message that prompts you to delete the new nodes before restoring is shown.

  • Some nodes were deleted after a snapshot was created. A warning message that prompts you to restore the nodes before restoring is shown.
