I have done a cbbackup from one of my company’s Couchbase servers. I want to import that into my local Couchbase, it’s the latest version (3.1.0-1776). When I run cbrestore I get the following error message:
error: unexpected db user version: 2015 vs [2004, 2014], maybe a backup directory created by older releases is reused
The error message is correct (I assume). I can’t see exactly which version of Couchbase the copy comes from, as I don’t have access to it myself. Will check with devops next week.
Can I still import this data somehow? I tried with the flag rehash=1 (long shot), but it didn’t work. What is the recommended way of doing this? I tried installing an old version of Couchbase (the first one that could be installed on a Mac), but it wouldn’t run, or rather, it refused access to the web admin page. I read through the Python source code also for cbrestore to see if I could find any other ways.
Any help would be appreciated. I have used cbrestore before successfully, but not with this data.
