Migration from 0.12.2 to 1.7.3


Hello all.

I need to migrate the data from influx-0.12.2 on centos6 to influx-1.7.3 on centos7.

I backupped the data in this way (my database name is data)

~ $ mkdir backup-test && cd backup-test
~ $ influxd backup -database data .

Now I have the backup-test directory with the data.SOMETHING file in.

After move the directory to the new server I tried:

~ $ influxd restore -db data -datadir /var/lib/influxdb/data -metadir /var/lib/influxdb/meta backup-test
Using metastore snapshot: backup-test/meta.00
2019/02/07 14:57:27 Restoring offline from backup backup-test/data.*

Now I’m able to see the file into /var/lib/influxdb/data/data/, however, from the influxdb shell, while I type ‘show databases’ I don’t see the database created.

So I repeated the entire procedure but before that I created the database with:

create database data with duration 60d

After create the database I don’t see its directory in /var/lib/influxdb/data, I see it only after the restore command.
The problem now is that when I type show measurements from the influx shell after using the data db, I don’t see anything, so I have the data but there are no relation with my db and the restored file.

What I am missing?
Thanks in advance
