2.10.3. Save a Configuration Snapshot Using the Management CLI

Snapshots are a point-in-time copy of the current server instance. These copies can be saved and loaded by the administrator.
The following example uses the standalone.xml instance, but the same process applies to the domain.xml and host.xml models.
Task

  • Save a snapshot

    Run the take-snapshot operation to capture a copy of the current server instance.
    [standalone@localhost:9999 /] :take-snapshot
    {
        "outcome" => "success",
        "result" => "/home/User/EAP_HOME/standalone/configuration/standalone_xml_history/snapshot/20110630-172258657standalone.xml"
    }
    
Result

A snapshot of the current server instance has been saved.
