I take some time to learn high available topic. And I try many time regarding disaster failure drill.But I found the path of ‘/var/lib/juju’ was remove in the situation of no data in mongodb when I try restart jujud. what’s wrong?

my requriments is that the directory of ‘/var/lib/juju’ is not deleted in the situation of no data in mongodb when I restart jujud. So, how can i do to achieve it? I you can help me, please rely me!

Thank you for your question @ytwxy99. Sorry that you are having a problem.

I’m not sure I understand the situation. If mongodb is empty, was Juju bootstrapped correctly initially?

What steps did you take before you attempted disaster recovery?

@jameinel did a long post on the manual steps to restore in a disaster recovery scenario:


We also have work on our roadmap this cycle to improve the restore mechanism.

What type of restore scenarios are you interested in?
