If i make a GUI backup to local storage (USB Drive), move that USB drive to a different computer, use cli commands to create a database (I’ve had issues copying DBs - different OSs perhaps?) and then use cli to restore the full backup on the 2nd computer. Everything restores, no errors. Can you have a better backup verification than that?
Or do I even need to recreate the DB? Just do a direct restore from the backup files
I asked because I’ve had many problems trying to reconcile GUI test with cli test , whether I copy the DB from source to local storage or rebuild the DB locally. (running beta 220.127.116.11)
I like to run the verifies locally, which does me no good if the cli test throws lots of ‘extra files’ messages that I then have to try and verify on customer PCs. Instead, I’m doing a full restore on all of my systems, staggered throughout the month. A couple of 1 TB SSDs with a sata/usb cable works just fine. They are large enough to hold about a week’s worth of full restores, then I wipe them.
