On a busy Red Hat Satellite6 , online backup fails with errors due to changing files

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • During the course of a Red Hat Satellite backup using the foreman-maintain tool, the backup can fail with errors about tar being unable to gather certain files because they've been removed since the backup started.

    # backupdir=/tmp/backup/ ; foreman-maintain backup online --assumeyes --skip-pulp-content $backupdir
    (output truncated)
    tar: /var/lib/candlepin/activemq-artemis/journal/activemq-data-7.amq: file changed as we read it
    tar: /var/lib/qpidd/.qpidd/qls/p001/efp/2048k/in_use/3UUID.jrnl: File removed before we read it
    tar: /var/lib/qpidd/.qpidd/qls/p001/efp/2048k/in_use/UUID.jrnl: File removed before we read it
