Cbbackup error u'error: SASL auth failed: 10.xxx.x.xxx:11210, Memcached error #32: Auth failure', None

Hi,
when executing the command:
/opt/couchbase/bin/cbbackup http://10.xxx.x.xxx:8091 /opt/couchbase/backups -m full -u admin -p pasword

I am getting the error :slight_smile:
(u’error: SASL auth failed: 10.xxx.x.xxx:11210, Memcached error #32: Auth failure’, None)

  1. when doing telnet to 10.xxx.x.xxx:11210 it works fine.
  2. The cbbackup command is executed from the gateway server, and not from the couchbase server.
  3. ON the gateway server installed “couchbase server 6 community”, i installed it just for the couchbase cli tool.
  4. the cbbackup is running against “couchbase server 4”.

what is the reason for the error?

thanks
