Back up the compute node configuration

After setting up the compute node or making changes to the configuration, it is a good practice to make a complete backup of the compute node configuration.

Make sure that you create backups for the following compute node components:
  • Management processor

    You can back up the management processor configuration through the Lenovo XClarity Controller interface. For details about backing up the management processor configuration, see:

    Backup BMC Configuration

    Alternatively, you can use the save command from Lenovo XClarity Essentials OneCLI to create a backup of all configuration settings. For more information about the save command, see:

    the Lenovo XClarity Essentials save command

  • Operating system

    Use your own operating-system and user-data backup methods to back up the operating system and user data for the compute node.
