Multichain Backup and Restore

+2 votes

Hello. We are testing different scenarios for backup and restore. We would like to try the following:

  • Restore a chain to a new node (by using the full backup / restore directory method) - This works fine.
  • We would like to then clone this chain to a new "name" using the clone feature - This works fine.
  • We fire up the cloned chain - This works fine
  • Inside, the streams present in the original restore and not present in the clone
Basically our question is (that may go against the secure principles of Blockchain):
  • Can we backup a chain, restore it to a complete new node and rename the chain while all streams, items and keys within the backed up chain persist?

Using the chain clone method only copies the parameters, not the chain contents.

I'm afraid it's not possible to fully rename a chain and all of its contents – the name is 'baked in' to the blockchain itself.
