The value for the parameter @MirrorDirectory is not supported error with Ola Hallengren Backup script

I am using Ola Hallengren’s Maintenance Solution, and it’s been working great for our environment.

Quick question regarding the User Database backups s proc. Currently, when I’m taking backups, the backup files are getting saved to one of the servers local drive (Z: drive). But if I wanted to also get another copy of those same backup sets to a different drive or folder, I was thinking the @MirrorDirectory is where we can enter a different drive path for the backup files. (Please correct me if I’m wrong).

I wanted to test this, so I have duplicated the original the User Backup Database sqlserver job for my main backup job and renamed this new sqlserver job a “DatabaseBackup – USER_DATABASES – FULL_COPYONLY”. Here’s what I have on the first and only job step:

sqlcmd -E -S $ (ESCAPE_SQUOTE(SRVR)) -d LSDBA_DB -Q “EXECUTE [dbo].[DatabaseBackup] @Databases = ‘USER_DATABASES’, @Directory = N’Z:\COPYONLY_BACKUPS’,@MirrorDirectory =N’C:\MIRRORBAKS’, @CopyOnly = ‘Y’, @BackupType = ‘FULL’, @Verify = ‘Y’, @CleanupTime = 192, @MirrorCleanupTime= 24, @CheckSum = ‘Y’, @LogToTable = ‘Y'” -b

I’m currently testing this in the hope that it will place the main backup files on “Z:\COPYONLY_BACKUPS” folder, and place another backup set on “C:\MIRRORBAKS” foder. (I’m place them in C drive just for testing).

When I run the job, it is failing and the message is: Msg 50000, Level 16, State 1, Server (Instance Name here), Procedure DatabaseBackup, Line 436 The value for the parameter @MirrorDirectory is not supported. Msg 50000, Level 16, State 1, Server (Instance Name here), Procedure DatabaseBackup, Line 740 The documentation is available at Date and time: 2018-11-19 11:05:58. Process Exit Code 1. The step failed.

Could anyone shed some light on why it is saying the parameter for @MirrorDirectory is not supported? Thank you very much.

Strongly consistent backup of Mongo with Aurora at the exact same time

At my employer we use AWS Aurora DB & MongoDB Atlas hosted databases together on one application.

So we have nail biting scenarios where records are created on both and typically MongoDB points to records on Aurora that it needs. If there is some sync issue, like the data is on Mongo, but not Aurora and vice versa, this translates to terrible UXes with permission issues.

So my question is to do with backups. These systems must be snapshot at the exact same point of time. I am thinking ideally without any client usage at an early hour like 2AM, i.e. it’s brought down for a few minutes whilst snapshots are being made.

Actually I am not sure how to limit client access whilst still being able to run mongodump or an RDS snapshot. Am I missing a better approach to backup these two data stores together?

Perhaps I can take a strongly consistent backup at a certain point in time?

You might be thinking, what happens if you take a snapshot at 2AM and you lose everything at 10AM. This is acceptable RPO.

Backup not listed to restore from on new Android device

I have 3 android devices synced to the same Google account:

  • OnePlus One running Lineage OS 15.1 (up to date, not currently rooted)
  • NVidia SHIELD Tablet K1
  • OnePlus 3T – new, in factory reset state

I am trying to move all of my apps and data from the One to the 3T. Google Drive on the One shows under “Backups” (text translated from Spanish w/best guesses from context, etc):

  • Backup from A0001 – today at 21:49
  • Backup from NVidia SHIELD Tablet K1 – today at 10:57

However, booting the 3T, setting up the SIM, Wifi, and copying Google account information over using “Set up my device”, entering account password, skipping “share my data” questions gets me eventually to the restore screen, which shows only the K1 backup to restore from.

How can I fully restore from my One to the 3T? I estimate reinstalling all of my apps (from 3 sources – Play store, F-Droid, and Humble Bundle) and getting data syncing working and synced for my personal data to take at least 5 hours, and would not include call data, chrome tabs, game saves, etc – so anything faster than that is fair game. I have set up ADB for my One and used it for file transfers a number of times, and can probably set it up for the 3T, so ADB is fair game.

Edit: currently open tabs on this issue (might save some time):

  • How to manually restore Call Log from adb backup on OnePlus One? (SMS already restored)
  • Why is my Android not restoring the app data from its Google Drive backup?
  • Restore apps from backup on Google Drive

Farm backup stuck on Step 1

Ours is Multi server (2 WFE and 2 APP) SP 2016 Env.

As usual when we am trying to start backup of the entire farm, it remains on Step 1. enter image description here

We checked the ULS and found request has timeout enter image description here

However if we try to select only WSPs or other smaller component It moves to Step 2. Not able to make out what is going wrong today. We have been backing up the farm through C.A. for past many months.
