Problem with the param "innodb_log_files_in_group" and MariaDB 10.6

I have MariaDB 10.6.
In this version config parameter innodb_log_files_in_group is not present and it’s default value is 1. So, I have one file ib_logfile0.
But xtrabackup requires minimum of two log files.
I can’t do like this “–innodb-log-files-in-group=1” while starting because it ignores it if the value is less than 2.
As a result, I have an error:
“File ./ib_logfile1: ‘open’ returned OS error 71”
Yes, because I haven’t this file at all.
xtrabackup version 2.4.24

Hi @alexby.

None of the versions of Percona Xtrabackup are compatible with MariaDB 10.6, you should use mariabackup instead.

Hello @Alexby, just to elaborate, MariaDB has made extensive changes to their structure and software in such ways that it is no longer considered a MySQL equivalent. You’ll find that many tools that used to work with older versions of MariaDB no longer work because of the changes they have made.


Thank you all, guys.
