Hello, I take full backups of my FreePBX 184.108.40.206 server every night. Bare Metal and File lever. As well, I dump the database to the FreePBX server, with the built-in tool IE:
Admin–>Backup and Restore
Outside of this, I also wanted to create a hot-spare. So I used VMConvertor Standalone to do a HOTCLONE of the Our Master FreePBX server above. The hot-copy went perfectly. As a test, I brought down the master, and brought up the hotapre copy. Everything seemed to go well, and I could even make phone calls…however, after a few minutes, I got a message saying the system could not connect to MySQL. I rebooted, and sure enough I got a message saying the system could not connect to MySQL, so the system seemed to be running…however NO FreePBX gui and no MySQL connection. (I seemed to be able to make calls still)
Now, this is more than likely because I did the hot clone of MySQL/MariaDB and maybe it was writing records…but does anyone have any suggestions? Has anyone seen this before, should I be doing something when I bring up the hot clone, so MySQL/MariaDB is happy?
