Moving away from snapshot backups

foreman-rake db:dump saves dump of foreman database only
Expected outcome:
create dump files of candlepin and pulpcore as well
Foreman and Proxy versions:
Foreman and Proxy plugin versions:
Katello 4.12
Distribution and version:
RedHat 8.9
Other relevant data:
I’ve used the foreman-maintain backup snapshot feature prior to v3.10 and according to the docs (Foreman :: Manual), from now on I should only execute foreman-rake db:dump to back up the database(s), but looking at the size of the file, this is only a backup of the foreman database.
What about the other databases?

The guide you linked is for Foreman only.

Katello is sadly a tad more complicated and still suggests foreman-maintain backup: Administering Foreman (just not the “snapshot” variant of it)


alright, got it, I forgot to check the Katello docs. Thanks!
