Issue/Introduction

Vertica backups are not rotating and the remove command does not work.

 

Environment

Release : 3.7

Component : IM Reporting / Admin / Configuration

Resolution

Please try to run the remove again with "--debug 3" added in the command:
vbr -t remove -c --archive XXXXX --debug 3

Share the vbr debug log at /tmp/ directory for further investigation.

Additionally, provide the file /etc/ssh/sshd_config parameter “MaxStartups”.

Regarding the MaxStartups parameter. You have to uncomment the parameter and set it as 50 (only 50 without semicolons). Please be sure to restart the sshd service after the changes. 'service sshd restart' or '/etc/init.d/sshd restart'

Apply it on all ( source and target ) nodes. Then, try to run the backup to see if that helps. If it doesn't work we can return back the MaxStartups parameter.


After that, try ”1” first, if still not working please run the “2”, and also provide the reports-file to us as well.
1. vbr -t quick-repair -c

2. vbr -t collect-garbage -c configfile.ini --report-file=path/filename
