On my old 4.X box, when I did a backup I would get a single .tar file for that backup instance.
Now, on 6.x, I get 8 or so .tar files per server in my cluster. Is this normal? The backup still comes back stating successfull, but wondering if I need to do a restore, what file is it looking for?
For 5.x and 6.x versions this is the expected result
Yes, those are the files required to do a CUCM restore. As shown below;
DRS Supported Features and Components
CCM (CCM/CAR/CDR Repository Manager)
Cisco Unified Communications Manager database (CCMDB) includes Cisco Unified Communications Manager/CDR Analysis and Reporting/Call Detail Records)
(MOH) Music On Hold Audio Files

CCMPREFS Preference files
TFTP (TFTP Phone device files)
SYSLOGAGT SNMP (SNMP syslog component)
CDPAGT SNMP (SNMP cdp subagent)
TCT(trace collection tool)
CLM cluster Manager
Hope this helps!
