Hello @Rait,
NDB is a specialized engine that stores data on data node servers. The data does not exist on the MySQL server. xtrabackup is not capable of backing up NDB since the data lives, fragmented, on other nodes. In order to backup NDB, you need to use the manager and execute a backup process. This will create a consistent dump of your data, fragmented, on each data node. You need to gather up these backup fragments from each node and store them elsewhere for safety.


Hi, thank you for the good information :slightly_smiling_face:
