docker/dtr backup

Estimated reading time: 1 minute

Backup a DTR cluster to a tar file and stream it to stdout


docker run -i --rm docker/dtr \
    backup [command options] > backup.tar


This command creates a backup of configurations and image metadata, in a tar file. It can be used to make periodic backups of a DTR installation.

This command only creates backups of configurations, and image metadata. It does not backup the Docker images stored in your registry.

You should implement a separate backup policy for the Docker images stored in your registry, taking in consideration whether your DTR installation is configured to store images on the filesystem or using a cloud provider.

WARNING: This backup contains sensitive information and should be stored securely.
