VyOS Backup


Want to make backups of your VyOS router/firewall, This little script might help, It takes the config and converts it into set commands for easy restore on another box. We push it to an RSYNC on a ZFS/Nexenta server, but you put it anywhere as you like. Schedule it through Cron or better through the system task scheduler.

Don’t forget to use the commit archive to record your changes for the audit trails, like so :

set system config-management commit-archive location 'scp://admin:<password>@x.x.x.x/volumes/pool1/backup/vyos'

VyOS backup.sh Script: (store in /config/scripts/backup/ and do not forget to make it executable : chmod +x /config/scripts/backup/backup.sh)

# Vyos (1.6) Backup Script (jkool@integrative.it)
# Fetch me with scp root@x.x.x.x:/volumes/pool1/backup/vyos/backup.sh /config/scripts/backup/backup.sh
# Keep 5 versions local 
#
# Schedule with:
#
# set system task-scheduler task backup executable path '/config/scripts/backup/backup.sh'
# set system task-scheduler task backup interval '8h'

h=$(hostname)
d=$(date +"%Y%m%d%H%M")
dest=192.168.1.200::pool1_backup/vyos
scripts=/config/scripts/backup

cd $scripts

tar -czf $scripts/backup-auth-$h-$d.tar.gz /config/auth
/opt/vyatta/sbin/vyatta-config-gen-sets.pl > $scripts"/backup-config-"$h"-"$d".txt"

ls -F backup-config-$h*.txt | head -n -5 | xargs rm
ls -F backup-auth-$h*.tar.gz | head -n -5 | xargs rm

rsync $scripts/backup-config-$h-$d.txt $dest/$h
rsync $scripts/backup-auth-$h-$d.tar.gz $dest/$h



Simple RSYNC/SSH/ZFS Backup


Hi there,

It has been a while, busy building clouds and stuff. In the Christmas spirit of sharing, today I wanted to share this bash script for ZFS backups, it will basically snapshot the ZFS share, RSYNC new files over and the delete the old ZFS snaps.

Simple, yes, but somehow a wheel that keeps being reinvented over and over again, so here’s my version of it. Hope it helps someone save some time.

For this script, the backup server is one of our own TerraNas servers (basically, Ubuntu 14 with Native ZFS and NFS/4) the client is a Ubuntu14 LTS server, the SSH keys have been imported to the client so we can SSH across without passwords and such.

On the ZFS/NFS server side, we disable ID mapping to have usernames cross the wire instead of ID’s

echo N > /sys/module/nfs/parameters/nfs4_disable_idmapping

share the ZFS drive with:

zfs set sharenfs=rw=@192.168.33.0/24,insecure,no_root_squash pool1/backup

Where 192.168.33.0/24 is your subnet or host of course.

Then we share it our with zfs share -a and service nfs-kernel-server restart.

We do have one export to the localhost in the /etc/exports file, because NFS will complain if this file is empty, but the rest of the exports come from ZFS

On the client we have this little script:
