I am having a restore problem with InfluxDB (v 1.7.9). I did a backup on an ubuntu 18.04 machine to be able to export it to another machine with another instance of InfluxDB.
The backup process is OK using the command:
influxd backup -portable -database db_to_backup /mnt/backup
After that, I tried to import the database again with the command:
influxd restore -portable -db db_to_backup -newdb db_test_import /mnt/backup
I launched this on the same machine and also on the other machine which both have ubuntu 18.04. I get this error:
restore: updating metadata on influxd service failed: err = read tcp 127.0.0.1:33328->127.0.0.1:8088: read: connection reset by peer, n = 16
I also launched this restore command on an Ubuntu 16.04 machine and the restore is good.
The “ufw” is disabled and I have exactly the same Influx configuration files on all machines.
