Our MetaShare server 3.0 has died (RAID failure). I have replicated the installation (3.0.1) with the same sync user at the same URL, etc.
The 100 points question: will our metadata stored on managing nodes be pushed back on my new (and empty) installation or do I have to restore the resources from my backups? In this case, all the resources IDs will be different and already synchronized metadata will not work anymore...
the easiest solution is probably to restore a full backup of your storage folder and database, if available.
Otherwise you should just reimport the metadata for which your META-SHARE node is a master node, i.e., the metadata for your own language resources. This will unfortunately change the IDs (and thus also the URLs) of your language resources. Other nodes should automatically handle the new situation. The metadata of all other nodes should automatically be fetched again by your node in the next synchronization run.
