I have a strange thing happening with some of our servers that I use xtrabackup on. First I run the command ‘innobackupex --user=root --password=xxxxx /backups’ and it does some backing up and file copying but the resulting files are only half the size of the database. Even if I ‘rm -rf /backups/*’ and run another backup its the same result.
The second thing is I can never get the apply-log to work it gives an error that says ‘This target seems to be not prepared yet’ and ‘InnoDB: Operating system error number 2 in a file operation.
InnoDB: The error means the system cannot find the path specified.’ and ‘Fatal error: cannot find ./xtrabackup_logfile.’
Anyone know whats going on here?
