DataMover Restic retain and prune policies do not work as expected

The retention and prune features provided by VolSync and Restic are not working as expected. Because there is no working option to set the prune interval on VolSync replication, you have to manage and prune remotely stored backups on S3 storage outside of OADP. For more details, see:

OADP Data Mover is a Technology Preview feature only. Technology Preview features are not supported with Red Hat production service level agreements (SLAs) and might not be functionally complete. Red Hat does not recommend using them in production. These features provide early access to upcoming product features, enabling customers to test functionality and provide feedback during the development process.

OADP 1.2.0 release notes

The OADP 1.2.0 release notes include information about new features, bug fixes, and known issues.

New features

The new resourceTimeout option specifies the timeout duration in minutes for waiting on various Velero resources. This option applies to resources such as Velero CRD availability, volumeSnapshot deletion, and backup repository availability. The default duration is ten minutes.

You can back up objects and snapshots on AWS S3 compatible providers.

Technical preview features

The OADP Data Mover enables you to back up Container Storage Interface (CSI) volume snapshots to a remote object store. When you enable Data Mover, you can restore stateful applications using CSI volume snapshots pulled from the object store in case of accidental cluster deletion, cluster failure, or data corruption.

OADP 1.1.4 release notes

The OADP 1.1.4 release notes lists any new features, resolved issues and bugs, and known issues.

New features

This version of OADP is a service release. No new features are added to this version.

Fixed bugs

The following bugs have been fixed in this release:

Known issues

This release has the following known issues:

  • OADP backups might fail because a UID/GID range might have changed on the cluster where the application has been restored, with the result that OADP does not back up and restore OpenShift Container Platform UID/GID range metadata. To avoid the issue, if the backed application requires a specific UUID, ensure the range is available when restored. An additional workaround is to allow OADP to create the namespace in the restore operation.

  • A restoration might fail if ArgoCD is used during the process due to a label used by ArgoCD, app.kubernetes.io/instance. This label identifies which resources ArgoCD needs to manage, which can create a conflict with OADP’s procedure for managing resources on restoration. To work around this issue, set .spec.resourceTrackingMethod on the ArgoCD YAML to annotation+label or annotation. If the issue continues to persist, then disable ArgoCD before beginning to restore, and enable it again when restoration is finished.

    • For CephFS, you can create up to 100 snapshots per PVC. (OADP-804)

    • For RADOS Block Device (RBD), you can create up to 512 snapshots for each PVC. (OADP-975)
