Dear all,

I have server A and B .
server A I install "Percona-Server 55-5.5.27".

I want to full backup database on server B (/var/lib/mysql) with command this below

/usr/bin/innobackupex --parallel=4 --host=${IP_SERVER_B} --user=dbuser--password=dbpassword--no-timestamp /home/percona/innobackup/2012-10-15

After full backup is finish, I check dir "/home/percona/innobackup/2012-10-15" is not backup dir /var/lib/mysql on server B. But it's backup /var/lib/mysql on server A.

why this could happen, but I've replaced --host=${IP_SERVER_B} by ip address server B

Thank You

    Hi Moses,

    What you are trying to do, won't work with --host option. For your purpose, I guess you should use streaming backup. As per your scenario, if you want to take backup of B server and transfer it to A server, you should run backup command on B server with --stream/xbstream option to transfer it to A server. (rather then running backup on A server)

    You can get more information here. _ibkx_stream.html

    Hi niljoshi,



    I Run command on server B

    [[email protected] ~]# innobackupex --host=localhost --user=myuser --password=mypassword --stream=tar ./ | ssh -q [EMAIL="root@"][email protected][/EMAIL] "cat - > /tmp/test/backup.tar"

    My Questios is :

    1. Whether during the backup process will use temporary storage on server B?
    2. If i check ,the command above is full backup. if the above command already include function "apply-log"?

    Thank You
