Can I do a fresh installation of 8.1 and use data from 7.0 by restoring a backup from 7.0?
Pre-7.2 backups are not compatible with later Vertica versions. To resolve this issue, vbr includes the vbr task 7.2_upgrade. This task copies an existing pre-7.2 backup and creates a 7.2.x-compatible version of it.
Thanks Raj. I will try that.
