For the past few weeks, my wal archive backups (replication mode) of postgresql databases no longer work.
the error message is:
(error): Client pgisdata-new went offline.
(error): Error saving metadata. Could not open output file at "/media/vol1/urbackup/pgisdata-mshe.univ-fcomte.fr/221024-1932/.hashes/urbackup_backup_scripts/postgresbase/.dir_metadata"
this error seems unavoidable because urbackup_backup_scripts/postgresbase is a file and not a directory.
@thijs-42 you are right, thanks for the suggestion.
UrBackup Server v126.96.36.199 and UrBackup Client Controller v188.8.131.52 is the winning couple!
Disadvantage of this solution: updates from all other clients are blocked, but we can’t do better until the problem is solved.
Meanwhile I’m on Server 2.5.30. The problem still persists.
I looked into it again, as it seems the problem is the path. Error saving metadata. Could not open output file at "/var/lib/urbackup/psqlserver/230419-1416/.hashes/urbackup_backup_scripts/postgresbase/.dir_metadata
I’ve taken a look at that directory. “.hashes/urbackup_backup_scripts/postgresbase” is a file. Therefore it can not contain the file .dir_metadata. But in “.hashes/urbackup_backup_scripts” there exists a file .dir_metadata. Probably it wan’t to reference that one?
Anyway, would be cool if there would be a bug tracker somewhere, to follow bugs, and get notified when they are fixed…
