KACE K1000 SQL Frequent Backup Support
10/22/2018 220 views
We have an issue in our organization in which SQL tables become damaged when there is a sudden powerdown of the K1000 due to a VM failure.
We then have to restore from a backup taken the previous night at 2am.
We would like to take frequent backups of our SQL tables in order to have a recent or near-recent copy of the SQL tables available at our disposal at all times to recover from these types of events more quickly.
I have been told that a standard MySQL backup process, in which the SQL tables are created, set to read-only, and then flashed, is not feasible as root password and SQL access keys are required.
But I have to believe that this is possible - the K1000 has to have some mechanism or process in place that allows for minimizing downtime. It is, after all, a production technology.
How do others deal with this problem? What is a decent solution? Is there a third-party backup tool that can help?
