    Hi Paddy - does the backup user need SUPER rights in order to perform incremental backups?

    Hi Bethany,

    In 1.0.2, there is a bug that requires SUPER, REPLICATION CLIENT for incremental backups.

    In 1.0.3 (which will be released today), the backup user will need SUPER privilege for incremental backups.

    Thanks,
    Paddy

    Thanks! Also, are incremental backups only supported when running mysql-zrm on the machine local to the mysql databases? I'm trying to do an incremental backup of a different host, but the backups are failing because zrm is trying to copy the bin logs from the local filesystem rather than the remote one:

    INFO: Getting list of binary logs using command mysql --user=dba-backup --password=***** --host=db.is.gatech.edu -e "show master logs"
    INFO: cp -p "/var/lib/mysql/db-bin.000001" "/var/lib/mysql-zrm/db/20060922134922/db-bin.000001"
    cp: cannot stat `/var/lib/mysql/db-bin.000001': No such file or directory
    ERROR: Copy from /var/lib/mysql/db-bin.000001 to /var/lib/mysql-zrm/db/20060922134922/db-bin.000001 failed
    ERROR: Could not copy bin log file db-bin.000001

    etc...

    Hi Bethany,

    Incremental backups/restoration are supported only on local machine. We will
    add remote support in a future release.
