Testing a database restore so backed up the database tickdata with “portable” format .
now in the same server I dropped the database tickdata and try to restore back into the same server first with portable switch and then with -online switch … does not work!
I am glad I checked this out before I upgraded to 1.5.2
$ /usr/bin/influxd restore -portable -database tickdata -rp autogen /opt/influxdb/backups/backup_influx_dbs/08May2018/tickdata 2018/05/11 11:26:05 error updating meta: DB metadata not changed. database may already exist restore: DB metadata not changed. database may already exist
Any help appreciated.
