Backup FAILED.
Starting backup of database drdata.
Participating nodes: v_drdata_node0001, v_drdata_node0002, v_drdata_node0003.

Snapshot complete.

Ran quick-repair and collect-garbage tasks but still get the failure shown above.

Environment

Release : 20.2

Cause

Corrupted backup files

Resolution

use a diff snapshot name in backup.ini to start a new full backup and once that's done, can remove the old snapshot name backups.
