Data Backup and Recovery

Snapcenter for MySQL Filesystem not supported

marcusgross

Hi,

 

we are running SC 4.3.1 to backup MySQL / MariaDB on Linux.

Agent is installed and running. MySQL resource was discovered but locked.

 

When choosing the credentials to unlock it, it fails with the message:

Failed - Failure in Filesystem plug-in discovery : [Filesystem '/' is a native file system and is not supported.] : <Hostname>

 

The database is running on NFS. Is there a way to trace the issue?

Can you check the datadir is on the Ontap storage?

"select @@datadir; "

Hi,

 

here it is:

MariaDB [(none)]> select @@datadir;
+-----------------+
| @@datadir       |
+-----------------+
| /var/lib/mysql/ |
+-----------------+

 

the datadir points to a local FS. That seems to be the issue.

 

uname -a
Linux <Server> 3.10.0-1062.18.1.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed Feb 12 14:08:31 UTC 2020 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Yes, Pranjith is absolutely correct. I remember adding few VMs to SnapCenter resource group sometime back and it complained 'un-supported' due to the fact that they were sitting on local-ds (non-netapp volume).

Hi,

 

they got in contact with the MariaDB support.

 

They stated that the database "should not run on NFS". 

 

Is there a way of disabling the check of the filesystemlayout?

Yes. Please move the database to a Ontap Storage File system and then backup will go through.

Hi,  which *nix OS you are running, uname -a ?
