# chef\_server\_backup.rb
-This script backs up the following data from the Chef Server.
-* nodes
-* roles
-* data bags and items
-This script will use `.chef/chef_server_backup` as the default directory to backup the data to, but you can change the location by setting `knife[:chef_server_backup_dir]` in `.chef/knife.rb`. For example:
- knife[:chef_server_backup_dir] = "/home/username/chef_backups"
-Cookbooks are not backed up as they are assumed to already be in the chef-repo and can be uploaded using `knife cookbook upload -a`. Clients are not backed up as they should be reregistered using the validation certificate of the new Opscode Platform organization or other Chef Server.
-See [How to Contribute]( to Opscode projects if you encounter a bug with these scripts and would like to contribute a fix.
+This script is deprecated. You should look at [Steven Danna's knife hacks]( for the `backup_export.rb` and `backup_restore.rb` plugins.
