Running the backup-and-restore utility
To run the backup-and-restore-utility tool, you can use the commands and the arguments of the operations such as create and maintain a complete backup image, monitor backup progress and restore a backup image.
For Non-Ambari (Manual) Installations of HDP and HBase: You must modify the container-executor.cfg configuration file to include the allowed.system.users=hbase property setting. No spaces are allowed in entries of the container-executor.cfg file. Ambari-assisted installations of HDP automatically set the property in the configuration file.
Example of a valid configuration file for backup-and-restore:
yarn.nodemanager.log-dirs=/var/log/hadoop/mapred yarn.nodemanager.linux-container-executor.group=yarn banned.users=hdfs,yarn,mapred,bin allowed.system.users=hbase min.user.id=500
Enter hbase backup help command in your HBase command-line interface to access the online help that provides basic information about a command and its options.
