Thanks for replying. I know your meaning and engine-backup command. But I have
some questions with your way: “If the hosted-engine needs to

Do you recreate the Guest using original host? And the host needn’t to be fresh
installed and just excute hosted-engine –deployed again, we can
recreate another OS?

In 3.4 there is a backup/restore utility called engine-backup. You can use this to
backup the RHEV-M database(s) as well as restore. Of course this
won’t backup the Guest OS itself.
My DR strategy is to simply copy off these engine-backup files to another location. If
the hosted-engine needs to be restored for some reason I will
just recreate the OS and restore the engine database.
Check this link for documentation:

*Subject:* [ovirt-users] How to backup/restore the rhevm-VM in hosted-engine ?
As the mauual, I can’t find anyway to backup/restore the rhevm-VM in the
hosted-engine. The I just try to backup the storage of rhevm-VM
(using cp –prf to make a copy of folder). Then I make some change and replace the origin
RHEVM-VM content with my backup folder (of course I shutdown
the rhevm-vm first). At last the vm can be up,but the status is *NOT* health but as
Status up-to-date : False
Hostname : 188.8.131.52
Host ID : 1
Engine status : unknown stale-data
Score : 2400
Local maintenance : False
Host timestamp : 1409743461
Extra metadata (valid at timestamp):
timestamp=1409743461 (Wed Sep 3 07:24:21 2014)
So are there some proper way to backup the rhevm-vm?
