So I'm evaluating ECE and testing its abilities to restore from snapshot. So i had a functional ECE install with a number of deployments. All of which were sending snaps to minio regularly without issue. Before uninstalling ECE I ensure all of the deployments had recently been backed up to the S3 minio instance.
I reinstall ECE and add my repository information again. I enable snapshots for one of the default deployments to ensure minio connectivity. The new deployment was successfully able to create and upload a snapshot.
I move on to try and restore from a snapshot and none of my previous snaps are listed. I do not know what is going on here. Are there limitations to the ECE trial license that prevent me from restoring?
I can confirm that the my previous deployments were running ELK stack 7.5 and that is the same target version that i'm trying to restore to.
Snapshot Recovery on a Separate ECE Setup Does this still apply here? Are there any plans to make this process any better? As a user i expect to see the snapshots to be listed perhaps if they are unusable they can have a strike through or link to information as to why its being marked as unusable. Leaving me completely in the dark and searching forums for hours to ultimately find no good answers is very frustrating.
