Running cbbackupmgr remotely


#1

Currently we run cbbackup from a remote docker container to periodically backup our database. This involves cloning the couchbase tools repository and then running the python script. I’d like to upgrade to cbbackupmgr, but I can’t see any way to access the tool besides installing the entire couchbase enterprise server. And from there, I haven’t seen any documentation describing how you can backup a remote cluster. Does the new tool support our use case?

Hello @lukeb,

cbbackupmgr does support the use case of backing up clusters remotely.

Cbbackupmgr is currently only available in Couchbase Server Enterprise edition.
