Description Benjamin Chardi 2016-07-11 07:13:17 UTC
Description of problem:

Dear friends,

We are building the DR strategy for our Satellite 6.1.9 deployment, one satellite server + 3 capules with RHEL6 and RHEL7 channels + some custom content (~ 250G on /var/lib/pulp). For the moment we have ~50 clients attached to it but in the next year we will reach more that 30K clients attached.

The problem that we are facing now (and it will be getting worst when we attach more clients) is that the recommended DR strategy for Satellite 6.1.9 (katello-backup and katello-restore) is taking more that 4 hours to complete a full backup and it requires satellite services to be stopped in order to do it.

What we need is a faster and continuos DR strategy without the need to stop satellite services. Maybe the inter satellite sync ISS feature provided on Satellite 6.2 can be used to archive it. The ideal scenario for this kind of satellite DR for us is:

* Satellite  is continuously hot-replicating content to Satellite-DR .

* Satellite-DR must be fully operational as a replica of Satellite, Satellite-DR can have some clients attached to it  and that clients must see the replicated content from Satellite. 

* In case of DR scenario, after executing some fast process on Satellite-DR the satellite services are re-established and clients can get content from Satellite-DR via Capsules. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Satellite 6.1.9

How reproducible:
Always when katello-backup and  katello-restore are executed

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:
It takes more than 4 hours to complete katello-backup and the process need satellite to be stopped in some steps.

Expected results:
Continuous and fast katello-backup without stopping Satellite services
