vbr.py failes when disk containers are different during full backup/ restore
When doing full backup and restore using vbr.py, Vertica reports a problem in catalog bootstrap if the disk locations used in the backup server are not the same as that in the restore server. We had a secondary disk added using ADD_LOCATION in the database that was backed up. The IP address and the node name are the same between the restore and backup servers, only the disk structure is different. This problem was fixed by making the disk containers identical, but that severely limits the usage of the backup function. I couldn't find this requirement to have the same disk structure in the documentation as well.
