Backing up 5.6 with GTIDs

I read that xtrabackup 2.06 has support for MySQL 5.6, but not with global transaction IDs. Seeing as how GTIDs were the only reason I upgraded MySQL, is there any info on what will happen if I try to backup with GTIDs? Will it fail?

Is there any timeline for GTID support in Xtrabackup?


Hi Imran,

Xtrabackup 2.0.6 will not fail when GTID is enabled, it will just not include GTID coordinates into the backup. As per our development team, full MySQL 5.6 support including GTID is planned for Xtrabackup 2.0.7 and It will be released around 18th April 2013.

that sounds awesome!
thanks for all the great work.
