I have a FoundationDB cluster that does not have TLS enabled I’d like to back up. FoundationDB fdbbackup covers flags to feed the agent to address self-made certificates and (Solved) Correct setup of TLS for FoundationDB covers setting up TLS but the docs suggest I may be able to get backups without having to first flip traffic in my cluster to use TLS. From Backup, Restore, and Replication for Disaster Recovery:
By default, backup will communicate over https.
This I read to suggest that it’s possible to communicate otherwise but, as far as I can tell from reading the source, https is mandatory. Is this true? If so that’s okay but I sure wouldn’t mind getting a backup regime running before I start adding TLS into my cluster.
