Why are DB files not getting backed up to Local FS location?

.db files are not getting backup in local fs only json and cql files are being generated while taking backup.. All the .db extension files are being stored on server location

I have used opscenter 6.7 and took backup using local fs however the backup is happening at both locations i.e., server and Local FS but the .db files are being generated at server location only not in the Local Fs location, i can see only .json and .cql files in LocalFs lcoation.

The issue you posted indicates you have a configuration issue with the OpsCenter Backup Service.

There are several requirements for the Local FS location to work with OpsCenter including:

  • it must be unique and self-contained
  • the location is not shared with other backups
  • it must be dedicated for use exclusively by OpsCenter

For more information, see the documentation on OpsCenter Backup Service. As I advised you in another post, you will need to log a ticket with DataStax Support if you have follow up questions with OpsCenter. Cheers!

Hi @Erick Ramirez,


Thank you for the information, i have cleared the FS and followed the requirements and finally am able to see the .db files are getting generated.
