Cannot backup vertica with messages after login

Hi experts,

 

We have 3 nodes of vertica, every machine has default login message, which means default message pop-up after login. When we try to backup our database, we failed. The output of command looks like that the default login pop-up message blocks the backup of other 2 nodes except the node in the operating machine.

I executed "/opt/vertica/bin/vbr.py --task listbackup –config-file backup.ini >XXXX.log" command to get the output, the log file is in the attachment.

Please help...

 

Regards,

Robert

  • Hi Robert,

     

    In your vbr cobfiguration file, I see

     

    [Mapping]
    v_itbadb_node0001 = localhost:/tmp/vertica_backup/
    v_itbadb_node0002 = localhost:/tmp/vertica_backup/
    v_itbadb_node0003 = localhost:/tmp/vertica_backup/

     

    Looks like you are attempting to backup to the same node. Just replace localhost with the IP addresses of the nodes and re run the backup.

     

    Thanks

  • Thanks Gayatri,

     

    I tried as you said, but it still cannot work. From my perspective, the backup host is where the backup files should locate, rather than where the node is, because Vertica itself will care where its nodes are, am I correct? I attached the log file after I execute the backup command.

  • Hi Robert,

     

    This time vbr is failing due to insufficient disk space on node2 and node3

     

    rsync: writefd_unbuffered failed to write 4 bytes to socket [sender]: Broken pipe (32)
    rsync: write failed on "/home/dbadmin/vertica_backup/v_itbadb_node0002/backup~new~/opt/vertica/itbadb/v_itbadb_node0002_catalog/Snapshots/catalog.ctlg": No space left on device (28)

    rsync: write failed on "/home/dbadmin/vertica_backup/v_itbadb_node0003/backup~new~/opt/vertica/itbadb/v_itbadb_node0003_catalog/Snapshots/catalog.ctlg": No space left on device (28)

     

     

    Retry the backup after freeing up space on the vertica nodes or try to backup to different hosts.

     

    Hope this helps.

     

    Thanks

  • Thank you Gayatri, The problem is solved. the rsync still got problem, if I set all the backup host to the first node machine, but at least it works when I backup separately. Regards, Robert
