Recovery from backup failed for schema

Hi all,
Got an issue while trying to recover a schema from an incremental backup taken today:

Storage [58546837430795737] end epoch [467028147] is beyond the backup epoch [467007974]. Aborting the operation as this can make the database inconsistent

Could you please suggest as to what can be done as a workaround?



  • Please check if projection 58546837430795737 has data in WOS. If so, please perform moveout and try recovery

  • Ran the following but found no output:
    select * from projections where projection_id = '58546837430795737';

    select * from v_monitor.storage_containers where storage_oid = '58546837430795737';

  • This seems to be a known bug. It has been fixed in vertica 8.x version. One possible workaround could be you can restore objects to different cluster with same number of nodes. Then backup the object again and then restore it in your cluster.
