riak-admin backup appends the node name on the end of the backup file specified. Compress subsequently fails because the filename provided to riak-admin isn't the actual filename created. This patch appends the node name to the input file for the compressor.

Initial commit and pull request did not properly clean up the original dump file. This commit fixes this.

since this has no test coverage, we need some other riak users to confirm this indeed works as expected. any volunteers?

Confirming this fix works for backing up Riak with compression.

Happened to run into the same issue. I would have committed the same patch, but glad to see it was fixed already. Thanks jlambert121!

@tomash - anything else I can do to get this merged?


tomash commented Nov 6, 2012

i'd like to ask @meskyanichi before merging stuff that's not covered with tests. michael, what do you think?


jlambert121 commented Jan 4, 2013

any chance this can get merged into the next release?


jlambert121 commented Jan 8, 2013

@meskyanichi any thoughts? I can build a riak machine for you to test on if needed.

I don't see any problem with this, since we have 2 users confirming this works.
Specs updated and changes pushed to 'develop'.
