Description Matej Kollar 2013-06-03 14:29:34 UTC
Description of problem:

  Running `db-control verify $online_backup_file` prints (on stdout)

    ** Restoring from file $online_backup_file.
    Restoration complete.

  From what I know, we do not support verify on hot-backups.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 5.6

How reproducible: always/deterministic

Steps to Reproduce:

  mkdir $backupdir
  chmod a+wx $backupdir
  db-control online-backup $backupdir/backup

  # requested by db-control verify
  spacewalk-service --exclude=postgresql stop

  db-control verify $backupdir/backup 2>/dev/null

Actual results:

  ... "** Restoring from file $backupdir/backup.\nRestoration complete.\n"

Expected results:

  Shutting down db probably should not be requested.
  Warning that verifying on-line backups is not supported.
  Exit with non-zero value.

Additional info:

  Differentiation based just on fact that cold-backup is directory
  while hot-backup is file may suffice(?).
