Back up and restore the Salt Master node

This section describes how to create backups of the Salt Master node using Backupninja. During the Salt Master node backup, Backupninja creates backup configuration scripts containing the data about PKI and CA certificates located in the /etc/salt/pki and /etc/pki/ca directories as well as the cluster model metadata located in the /srv/salt/reclass directory. Using these backup scripts, you can easily restore your Salt Master node in case of hardware and software failures.
