You're viewing documentation for a previous version of Scylla Manager. Switch to the latest stable version.
Currently, Scylla Manager supports only entire schema restoration, so
--keyspace flag is not allowed.
Because of small size of schema files, resuming schema restoration always starts from scratch.
In order to restore Scylla cluster schema use sctool restore with
Scylla Manager with CQL credentials to restore destination cluster.
Otherwise, the restored schema might be overwritten by the already existing one and cause unexpected errors.
All nodes in restore destination cluster should be in the
UN state (See nodetool status for details).
After successful restore it is important to perform necessary follow-up action. In case of restoring schema, you should make a rolling restart of an entire cluster. Without the restart, the restored schema might not be visible, and querying it can return various errors.
It is recommended to drop all materialized views and secondary indexes that are part of the restored schema.
The next step,
--restore-tables, does not restore materialized views or secondary indexes.
It is the end user’s responsibility to drop and recreate them after the tables have been successfully restored.
Because of being unable to alter schema tables
tombstone_gc option, restore procedure “simulates ad-hoc repair”
by duplicating data from each backed-up node into each node in restore destination cluster.
Fortunately, the small size of schema files makes this overhead negligible.
