Restore an ML workspace
Restoring a backup creates a new CML workspace, and recreates all of the projects, jobs, applications and so on in the original workspace.
- In the Workspace Backups UI, find the workspace to restore. You can search for the workspace name or CRN. There can be multiple backups for a given workspace.
Enter the workspace, and manually stop all workloads (sessions, jobs,
applications, and models).
For external NFS backed workspaces, copy the manual backup of external NFS data (corresponding to this particular backup) to the configured external NFS export. Ignore this step if the workspace is configured with internal NFS, as internal NFS data is backed up and restored automatically by CML.
- Look for the backup to restore, and click Restore. The restore process starts, and the workplace state changes to Creating workspace.
- Provision a new workspace that is in the same CDP environment as the original workspace.
Monitoring event logs
You can monitor the progress of the backup process by checking the event logs. In the Actions menu for the workspace, click View Event Logs, and then on the Events & Logs tab, click View Event Logs again for the latest backup event.
When the backup process completes, the workspace enters the installation completed state again.
If there were issues during backup, appropriate error messages will be displayed in the event logs. However the workspace will recover from failure and will be reverted back to the original state when backup was triggered.
