vertica full backup external fails with below error
vbr.py -t backup -c backup_restore_full_external.ini
Enter vertica password:
Error: Manifest not found at rsync://[x.x.x.x]:50000/home/verticauser/backups/ -- is the backup location initialized? Hint: Execute '--task init' first.
Vertica Version :v9.2.1-0
rsync : rsync version 3.1.2
Note: The pwdless ssh is properly set.
The rsync connection and file initialization:
2020/01/14 12:36:09  rsync on vbr/home/verticauser/backup_manifest from UNKNOWN (source IP )
2020/01/14 12:36:09  building file list
2020/01/14 12:36:09  rsync: link_stat "/home/verticauser/backup_manifest" (in vbr) failed: No such file or directory (2)
2020/01/14 12:57:33  name lookup failed for source IP: Name or service not known
Note1: Is it mandatory to have name lookup for rsync? I have added the host names in both source and target and do't see the above error.
However now I see the error below.
