I’m trying to follow the instructions to backup my Dremio data before upgrading to the latest version.
However, I’m getting errors when running the first step once I navigate to the Dremio directory in cmd.
I try the command: dremio-admin backup
But I get this: "‘dremio-admin’ is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
Am I not suppose to run this command in cmd?
It looks like your dremio-admin command is not in PATH. Can you please do the below ?
If Windows: Go to cmd prompt and then
cd C:\Program Files\Dremio\bin\ and then run dremio-admin
cd $DREMIO_HOME/bin and then ./dremio-admin
Hi @balaji.ramaswamy, I am running the ‘dremio-admin backup’ command within the C:\Program Files\Dremio\bin\ path with error.
Edit: Adding snapshot
@jackson this is currently not supported on Windows.
As a workaround, you can copy/backup all folders located under C:\Users<USER_NAME>\AppData\Local\Dremio. On Windows, Dremio is configured to look for this path for metadata by default.
Thanks @can. Can you also suggest the best way to upgrade Dremio for Windows?
I would like to upgrade to latest version and try out the REST API features.
@jackson After making a copy of the above directory, install the latest version of Dremio. Dremio will automatically upgrade your metadata to the latest version on first startup, which may take a few minutes.
