Restore with foreman-maintain does not work.
foreman-maintain restores foreman data from backup.
Foreman and Proxy versions:
Foreman and Proxy plugin versions:
Distribution and version:
Other relevant data:
did create a backup successfully with:
/bin/foreman-maintain backup offline -t 51200M /mnt/backup/
Now I want to restore the data, because the release notes mentioned, that it would be
a good idea to upgrade the system to EL8.
Installed the system with EL8, installed all the packages and started to restore our Foreman
foreman-maintain restore /mnt/backup/katello-backup-2022-09-06-13-57-52/
Well, it runs until “Extracting pulp data” and restores the first 50GB.
But than the tar command does nothing anymore.
So I tried to run this command manually:
tar --selinux --extract --file=/mnt/backup/katello-backup-2022-09-06-13-57-52/pulp_data.tar --absolute-names --overwrite --listed-incremental=/dev/null -M --directory=/
Well, tar wants me to replace pulp_data.tar:
“Prepare volume #2 for ‘/mnt/backup/katello-backup-2022-09-06-13-57-52/pulp_data.tar’ and hit return:”
Before I probably destroy my backup, I thought it would be a good idea to ask, if manually moving
the tar files would do the trick.
