Can't call method "disconnect" on an undefined value at innobackupex line 1482.

Hi,

I’m trying to create a backup of one specific database and I keep running into this error. Has anyone encountered this error yet? I googled it but alas, not a lot to go on…

[oracle@foo mysqlback]$ innobackupex --user=dbabck --password=********* --apply-log --export --include="^restoretest." /u03/mysqlback/

Thanks in advance for any feedback!

Ok never mind silly old me. the --apply-log and --export options point to an existing backup that’s prepared for a restore.
