Backup MySQL database remotely

roylco06roylco06 EntrantCurrent User Role Beginner

Currently, we have 3 windows server with MySQL servers and planning to use XtraBackup to run the incremental database backup.

Would like to setup this kind of scenario;

1. Install linux in HyperV.
2. Install Extrabackup in Linux.
3. Run Extrabackup and configure incremental backup database remotely from 3 windows server.
4. And put the database backup file in network drive.

Anyone already did this?

    The XtraBackup is designed to work only from the same host where the mysqld process is running, and unfortunately it cannot be a Windows machine. So, either migrate the database host to Linux or use other tools, like mydumper for instance.
