Need to add a new node to the repository and the first step is to do a backup.
Getting a permissions error when running the init task
$ /opt/vertica/bin/vbr.py --task backup --config-file backup_restore_full_local.ini
Error: Error in VBR config: Password file [/opt/vertica/config/password.txt] is not read/write protected. It should be only readable/writable by admin user/group.
Release : 3.x
Component : IM Reporting / Admin / Configuration
The file used to store the password for backups has to be accessible only by the dbadmin user and the verticadba group
chmod 770 password.txt
(your file name may vary)
