Percona backup: unable to do PITR restore

I have having a trouble with PITR restore

Entries in pbmPITRChunks

rs0:PRIMARY> db.pbmPITRChunks.find()
{ "_id" : ObjectId("604dfff66c3acc761ba2e45a"), "rs" : "rs0", "fname" : "pbmPitr/rs0/20210314/20210314121204-3.20210314122209-2.oplog.snappy", "compression" : "s2", "start_ts" : Timestamp(1615723924, 3), "end_ts" : Timestamp(1615724529, 2) }
{ "_id" : ObjectId("604e00c86c3acc761ba2e45d"), "rs" : "rs0", "fname" : "pbmPitr/rs0/20210314/20210314122209-2.20210314122539-3.oplog.snappy", "compression" : "s2", "start_ts" : Timestamp(1615724529, 2), "end_ts" : Timestamp(1615724739, 3) }

Backup snapshots:

PITR <off>:
  2021-03-14T12:12:04 - 2021-03-14T12:25:39

and when I try to restore it with pbm restore I am getting error

 **pbm restore --time="2021-03-14T12:12:04"**
..Error: define last oplog slice: get: mongo: no documents in result

Above restore produces this query in mongo and does not look quite right

“ns” : “admin.pbmPITRChunks”,

Hi, what version of PBM are you using? there were some fixes recently deployed that are related to the PITR functionality so I suggest upgrading to 1.5.0 if you haven’t already. The query above looks good to me, it should return the first slice you have… or am I missing something?
If still running into this problem and suspect a bug, you can open a ticket in

Hi @Sameer_Kattel

This is the bug of the PITR ranges displaying.

The first second of the displayed PITR range is basically exclusive (2021-03-14T12:12:04 in your case). That starting second is equal to (covered by) the snapshot “complete time”. pbm restore 2021-03-14T12:11:42Z will restore the database to the 2021-03-14T12:12:04 time (this is the complete time of this snapshot). Restore to the next second (pbm restore --time="2021-03-14T12:12:05") should work fine. But if you what to restore to exactly this second - restore of the snapshot will do.

I’ll just create a Jira ticket for this improvement request:
