Backup not working with Percona Distribution for MongoDB Operator


I have a well running installation (default). Now the backup is enabled but there is the following error


insertId: “qxtqwiwpxbklc9ug”

jsonPayload: {

PBM name: “2021-06-30T09:45:15Z”

backup: “cron-***-clus-20210630094505-dwtjv”

According to

kubectl -n *** get psmdb-backup

cron-luz-mongodb-clus-20210630093002-47dwk ***cluster ***-storage ***2021-06-30T09:30:12Z error 14m
cron-luz-mongodb-clus-20210630093503-hcqgh ***-cluster ***-storage ***/2021-06-30T09:35:13Z error 9m40s
cron-luz-mongodb-clus-20210630094004-n47bt ***-cluster ***-storage ***/2021-06-30T09:40:14Z error 4m39s

the backup job scheduling works but the backup creation itself not.

Anyone could give a hint ?

Thanks & Regards

Hi @jamoser,

Could you please share the output of kubectl -n <namespace> describe psmdb-backup <backup_name>? It should have more descriptive error message there.

Hi @egegunes

Thanks a lot for the kubectl cmd. It turned out that the keys were in the wrong format.
