I just want to know, Can we take a backup from Couchbase EE and restore to CE with cbbackup command?

@itssrinadh No this is not supported and not expected to work. Is there a reason why you are trying this?

We want to copy data from EE to CE. Becuause we want to use production data in CE Server. when we request in support couchbase they suggested to use cgbackup instead of cbbackmgr.

So what is best way to migrate or move from EE to CE without any data lost.


Which version of cbbackupmgr are you sing?
cbimport and cbexport which were enterprise tools are exposed to community from 6.5, so you can using them.
However, with cbbackupmgr, it’s only supported for EE.

Hi Chaitra,

Thank you for your response. I will check about cbbackupmgr version.

So can i export data from CB EE by using cbexport and import into CB CE by using cbimport?

Hi @chaitra.ramarao

CBImport failing with error of Cluster is not Couchbase Enterprise Edition .

so How we can Export data from CB EE and import to CB CE?
