    Sense June 2017 - Backups w/ RSM?

    Lucien Thompson

      Does the repository snapshot manager work in the June 2017 update?


      I was told it only works with synchronized persistence, which is not supported in the June 2017 release.

          Hi Lucien,


          RSM is no longer supported in June 2017 release. From 'Qlik Sense June 2017 release notes':


          Repository Snapshot Manager tool removed

          The automatic backup and restore tool Repository Snapshot Manager has been removed, as it was

          intended for deployments using synchronized persistence. Please refer to the online help for manual

          backup and restore procedures.


          Please refer to 'Backing up and restoring' sections of our help site. We are currently working on a new tool for these processes - supporting shared persistence, and hoping to have it available within the next release. Stay tuned.

              Thanksfully RSM was removed.


              PG_Dump is much better:


              Stop all Sense services except QRD (Qlik Sense Repository Database)

              Using CMD (like Administrator) enter to C:\ProgramFiles\Qlik\Sense\Repository\PostgreSQL\<database version>\bin

              and enter this command to backup: pg_dump.exe -h localhost -p 4432 -U postgres -b -F t -f "c:\backup_name.tar" QSR

              and this one when you want to restore: pg_restore.exe -h localhost -p 4432 -U postgres -d QSR "c:\backup_name.tar"

              if you have any problem restoring try this:

              dropdb -h localhost -p 4432 -U postgres QSR

              createdb -h localhost -p 4432 -U postgres -T template0 QSR


              pg_restore.exe -h localhost -p 4432 -U postgres -d QSR "c:\QSR_backup.tar"

                  Hi Crisian San,


                  both RSM and the upcoming tool I mentioned in my initial response are build around the pg_dump and you are most welcome to use it when backing up and restoring your database. Our intention is to provide users with a tool that (liked RSM used to) with a single command line would allow to back up and restore entire Qlik Sense site, meaning installation of Qlik Sense and the database, handling certificates, shared and supporting content, etc.


                  Thank you for your post!
