Maintaining API Connect

You can use utilities to complete maintenance tasks such as backup, restore, and certificate management in a VMware environment.

Note: When maintaining API Connect, do not use kubectl exec commands to access API Connect pods unless advised by IBM.

Do not make any changes on the deployed VMs unless documented here or otherwise advised by IBM. Attempting to manually update packages, adding new users, or installing new software will likely cause problems. Operating system updates are handled by API Connect fix packs.
