External Backup Host for Upgrade to 11.3

Is there an alternative to setting up an external CentOS backup host for the backup procedure prior to migration to 11.3?


I was informed that we can use the SA Head Unit as the backup host. Can this be done?

If yes - is there any specific considerations not explicitly listed for such a scenario, that I should take note of?


Also, it says -

Ensure that the host names for the systems to be backed up are resolvable on the backup host machine,

either by DNS or listed in the /etc/hosts file.


Should my hostname in itself be resolvable, or will FQDN be fine? As of now, the FQDN is resolvable.
