Thread: SUSE manager DB backup failing

  1. SUSE manager DB backup failing

    I have a prod and dev susemager. On the dev backup is working. On the prod when I run the command:

    mdba backup-hot --enable=on --backup-dir=/var/spacewalk/db-backup
    Backend error:
    You've specified "/var/spacewalk/db-backup" as a destination,
    but your backup is already in "/var/spacewalk/db_backup" directory.
    In order to specify a new target directory,
    you must purge (or disable) current backup.

    smdba backup-status
    Backup status: ON
    Destination: /var/spacewalk/db_backup
    Last transaction: Wed Oct 30 03:04:40 2019
    Space available: 95%


    ls -l /var/spacewalk/db_backup
    total 2153168
    -rw-r--r-- 1 postgres postgres 2204841389 Oct 30 03:04 base.tar.gz
    drwx------ 2 postgres postgres 6 Oct 30 03:04 tmp

    On the dev SUSE Manager I have run several backups with the same command.

    The man page say run smdba backup-purge but that option is not valid in the current version

    smdba
    SUSE Manager Database Control. Version 1.6.4
    Copyright (c) 2012-2019 by SUSE Linux LLC

    Available commands:
    backup-hot Enable continuous archiving backup
    backup-restore Restore the SUSE Manager Database from backup.
    backup-status Show backup status.
    db-start Start the SUSE Manager Database.
    db-status Show database status.
    db-stop Stop the SUSE Manager Database.
    space-overview Show database space report.
    space-reclaim Free disk space from unused object in tables and indexes.
    space-tables Show space report for each table.
    system-check Common backend healthcheck.

    To know a complete description of each command, use parameter 'help'.
    Usage:
    smdba <command> help <ENTER>

    Andy advice?

    after all that it was a simple typo. /var/spacewalk/db_backup --- the underscore should have been a dash in the directory name
