We make extensive use of views (migrating to N1QL but we have other priorities atm) so when we need to make changes to our production cluster we do so by spinning up a fresh cluster, adding our production views, then populating it with XDCR. When all the data is transferred and the views built we point traffic at the new cluster and reverse the XDCR so that we have the old cluster as a hot backup for a day or two while we make sure that all the servers are running as expected on the new cluster.
I’ve just finished a new backup routine that uses cbbackupmgr (previously we used cbbackup) and I’m wondering if my incremental backups will continue to work once they’re running on the new cluster? Or will I need to start fresh when we do a cluster replacement?
Just so I don’t find out the hard way. Currently we’re running Enterprise 4.6.3. Planning to upgrade to 5 in a few weeks.
