Openhabian restore doesn't work

running on a raspberry Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Rev 1.2
just downloaded last openhabian version (1.7.1 from 02 Dec 21), let it do its magic and first thing I did:

openhabian-config => 51 “restore” backup"

with an error message coming up, that something messed up. so I checked the logs:

similar messages appear, if I use sudo openhab-cli restore with the same backup.

Is there something I can do? wanted to update my remote pi with the current distribution while I’m at it.

Hi Thomas,

I had similar issues after a complete crash.
I think I solved your problem with removing the folder “userdata\persistence\rrd4j” files from my zip file. I recognized that my zip files were continuous increasing there size.

After removing the folder I was able to restore the zip file

BUT: I still have issues an playing around to solve other problems. I am not sure if I destroyed something with this step.

Regards Köchi

openHAB is stopped while you are trying to restore backup?

Here are some of my further issues:

When I backup my config it is stored with the root user. I think this is wrong

Then I tried to execute fix permission “14” but the command was not successfully executed.

Today I have installed everything new and I now the fix permission works again :wink:

Increase zram size limits in /etc/ztab and/or stop zram before restore.
You have accumulated too much persistence data.

ah. ok. I deactivated ZRAM and then the update went through. Not yet activated, because I don’t know if I need it, because this Pi starts from a harddisk.
