ONTAP 9.14.1 commands

system node restore-backup

Restore the original backup configuration to the HA target node

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the advanced privilege level.


The system node restore-backup command restores the backup configuration file that is stored on the partner node to the specified target node in an HA pair. The backup configuration file is restored after Data ONTAP has been installed on the target node.

The backup configuration file is stored on the HA partner node while the target node is down. After the target node has been installed, the partner node sends this backup configuration file to the target node through the management network by using the system node restore-backup command to restore the original configuration. This procedure is commonly used when replacing the target node’s boot device.

The target IP address should be the address of the target node used for netboot installation.


-node {<nodename>|local} - Node

Specifies the partner node that sends the backup configuration file to the target node. The value "local" specifies the current node.

-target-address <Remote InetAddress> - HA Partner IP Address

Specifies the IP address for the target node.
