Full System Recovery of Greenplum: Restoring the Greenplum Database System
If your master host or a segment host gets destroyed, you can restore the Greenplum database system.
If the master host is destroyed, you must replace it. For segment hosts, you can replace it and perform a parallel restore, or perform a serialized restore.
Before You Begin
- Choose the type of restore.
- To restore to a database system that is the same configuration as the backup (parallel restore), see Restoring the Greenplum Database to Different System.
- To restore to a database system that has a different configuration from the backup, see Performing a Serialized Greenplum Database Restore.
What To Do Next
- After you restore the database system, perform a full backup of the Greenplum database system.
