Apstra Database Overview

The Apstra server and related databases run in Docker containers. The database is stored in a single folder in the Apstra server at /var/lib/aos/db. You can copy the database between Apstra servers.

Source and Target database versions must be the same version. If versions are different, contact Juniper Technical Support for assistance before proceeding.

To ensure that device agents can 'call home' properly after database restoration, Source and Target must have the same IP address when starting the Apstra server, You can restore the software to a different IP address, but then you must reconfigure each device agent (/mnt/flash/aos-config, /etc/aos/aos.conf) to point to the new Apstra server IP address.


Any changes you make within the Apstra server are not stored in the backup.
