I installed the amd64 version of xtrabackup on solaris 10 SPARC 64 bit.
When I extract the files from the tar.gz file and try to run the xtrabackup executable, I get the following error
bash: ./xtrabackup: Invalid argument
When I run the same command on Windows (using alpha version), it works fine.
Is there something obvious that I haven’t set correctly?
Thanks for any help on this.
Can somebody confirm for me that this problem is caused by trying to run an executable for Solaris AMD64 on Solaris SPARC?
I thought Solaris 10 supported both architectures. Is this not the case?
This is the output of the isainfo and showrev commands on my system
$ isainfo -bv
64-bit sparcv9 applications

Application architecture: sparc
Hardware provider: Sun_Microsystems

I am not sure of the answer, but I suspect that you are correct, it is a platform issue.
