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?

    What is your vertica version? This seems to be a known bug.

  • Version is 7.2.3. is there any way we can recover after changing the Epoch map?
  • SruthiASruthiA Vertica Employee Administrator

    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.
