running XtraBackup under windows.

Hi Folks,

Hope you can provide some guidance getting the backup working on a windows machine. I know it’s still in alpha, so i expect to hit a few snags along the way.

So i have install :
running windows 7 pro
Version 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601
downloaded the

I’m running the following command :

C:\ProgramData\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.1\data>C:\xtrabackup-1.6.64bit\xtrabackup –
backup --datadir=“C:\ProgramData\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.1\data” --target-dir=“c:\t
emp\mysql” --defaults-file=“C:\Program Files (x86)\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.1\my.ini”

the output is so :
xtrabackup: cd to C:\ProgramData\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.1\data
xtrabackup: Target instance is assumed as followings.
xtrabackup: innodb_data_home_dir = .
xtrabackup: innodb_data_file_path = ibdata1:10M:autoextend
xtrabackup: innodb_log_group_home_dir = .
xtrabackup: innodb_log_files_in_group = 2
xtrabackup: innodb_log_file_size = 5242880
InnoDB: Error: log file .\ib_logfile0 is of different size 0
InnoDB: than specified in the .cnf file 0 5242880 bytes!

I’m able to startup mysql with out any issues of inconsistency, so i gather that the issue is that it’s not finding the correct configuration file.

Some help would be greatly appreciated.

Please file a bug in the percona-xtrabackup Launchpad project.

Hello there,

I do have the same problem.
Is it really a bug?
If yes, how can I check the fix?

Best regards
