Description:
Hi,

 We run jasper server software and due to log4j, as the services are affected we have turned off the server, We took a backup but there is no way to download the backup. 

We want a image of the server.

Thanks,
Sadashiv

Hi Sadashiv,

Unfortunately, there is no way to download a Bitnami Cloud Hosting Backup. Note that they are EBS snapshots of the machine volume, and AWS doesn’t provide a way to download the contents directly.

A workaround for this would be to create a disk based on the snapshot in AWS, attach it to a running instance, mount it, and create a compressed file from the disk, so that it can be downloaded.

Regards,
Luis.
