Any additional Information

Hi! Have you backed up and also restoring from Azure?

Do you have any outstanding logs from the nodes?


Hi @DudaNogueira ,

I tried restoring the backup couple times after failure and got all the objects in collections restored even though the response was a failure each and every time.

For me personally, creating a backup is seamless but restoring seems to have some problems. I faced similar issue in the past as well. At that time, I restored each class individually.

We are using Azure storage container to backup. Are there any recommendations to improve our experience with restores?

Are those restores being made on a clean server with same resources from source?

We usually go for GCP when it comes to backups store and doesn’t have issues, even for huge clusters.

Yes @DudaNogueira . The restore was made on a clean server with same resources as the source server.
