Backup Image Is Not Saved In Timestamp Folder (Doc ID 2651530.1)

Last updated on MAY 29, 2020

Applies to:

MySQL Enterprise Backup - Version 8.0 to 8.0 [Release 8.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Explain why and how to resolve the issue that, with MySQL Enterprise Backup 8.0.19, the parameter --backup-image ignores --with-timestamp option.

As per the documentation

if --backup-image does not give a full path name, mysqlbackup will actually take the value of --backup-image as a path relative to the current directory in which the command is run (for release 8.0.18 and earlier, the path is taken to be relative to the location specified by --backup-dir); if the --with-timestamp option is also used, the backup image is then saved in a subdirectory created under current directory (for release 8.0.18 and earlier, under the folder specified by --backup-dir) that bears the timestamp in its name.

So, why no directory is created under current directory that bears the timestamp in its name?
