How to add Backup Service after upgrading the Couchbase server from 6.5.1 to 7.0.0

Hi Team,

We are evaluating the 6.5.1 to 7.0.0 upgrade. After upgrading the server, the console UI Backup section says “The backup interface is only available on Couchbase clusters running the backup service. No Backup nodes were found on this cluster.”. How do we add the backup service to existing nodes?.

We have two nodes running

  1. Data and Query
  2. Index.

Would you please let us know how we can achieve this? Please respond ASAP as we are stuck @here.

Hello @Manoj_Pasumarthi ,

To make use of the new Backup features in Couchbase Server 7, a node in the cluster needs to have the Backup Service. Currently there are just two nodes with ( 1; Index and 2; Data and Query). Add a third node that has the Backup Service.

For more information about the Backup service please see the documentation.

I hope that helps!

Hi,

Thank you for responding. Can we add the backup service to an existing node ( index node ) without adding a new node?.

No service, can be added to an existing node. You can add and remove a node in one rebalance.

Thank you @pvarley. Got it.
