docker/dtr restore

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

Install and restore DTR from an existing backup

Usage

docker run -i --rm docker/dtr \
    restore [command options] < backup.tar

Description

This command performs a fresh installation of DTR, and reconfigures it with configuration data from a tar file generated by the backup command.

This command does not restore Docker images. You should implement a separate restore procedure for the Docker images stored in your registry, taking in consideration whether your DTR installation is configured to store images on the local filesystem or using a cloud provider.

After restoring, you can add more DTR replicas by using the the join command.
