Failed backup attemps

I am getting failed attempts to backup databases in influxdb ver 1.3.2

I am getting :

$ influxd backup -database telegraf -retention autogen /tmp/backup
2017/08/16 14:24:07 backing up rp=autogen since 0001-01-01 00:00:00 +0000 UTC
2017/08/16 14:24:07 backing up metastore to /tmp/backup/meta.00
2017/08/16 14:24:07 backing up db=telegraf rp=autogen shard=1156 to /tmp/backup/telegraf.autogen.01156.00 since 0001-01-01 00:00:00 +0000 UTC

2017/08/16 14:24:09 Download shard 1156 failed copy backup to file: err=, n=0. Retrying (2)…

what does this error mean.

I can backup fine on another 1.3.1 version

$ influxd backup -database telegraf -retention autogen /tmp/backup
2017/08/16 14:34:20 backing up rp=autogen since 0001-01-01 00:00:00 +0000 UTC
2017/08/16 14:34:20 backing up metastore to /tmp/backup/meta.00
2017/08/16 14:34:20 backing up db=telegraf rp=autogen shard=961 to /tmp/backup/telegraf.autogen.00961.00 since 0001-01-01 00:00:00 +0000 UTC


Is there any known backup issue in influxdb ver 1.3.2 ?  Please help confirm and any plan to fix the issue if it exists !

Same here with 1.3.3 version.

$ influxd backup -database hash /tmp/backup/

backup: copy backup to file: err=, n=0

Any resolution?

Thx,

I just upgraded to 1.3.4 and the backups now work fine!

We are the QA tester :):joy:

I’m facing this issue in 1.6.0
