I recently had a out of disk error in one of my MongoDB Instances. This happened while a backup was running. The backup never completed, but if I try to cancel it nothing happens.
pbm cancel-backup Backup cancellation has started
It says Backup cancellation has started, but even after quite some time it is still marked as “running” when I execute pbm status.
There is nothing in the logs beside:
2021-04-28T07:39:47.000+0000 I got command cancelBackup <ts: 1619595586>
I tried deleting it but that doesn’t work as it’s still running:
pbm delete-backup 2021-04-27T00:19:49Z Are you sure you want delete backup(s)? [y/N] y Waiting for delete to be done .. Error: deleting: unable to delete backup in running state
I tried disabling PITR as that helped with another problem before but to no avail.
The problem is that while it’s still running I can’t run another backup. So my PBM is basically unusable.
I guess I might be able to just remove it from the database directly, but I am hesistant to mess with the PBM documents without going through the command line as I have no idea if it might lead to unintended side effect.
MongoDB Version: 4.4.0
