“last_backup” is a reserved file name

This article is for Zmanda Recovery Manager For MySQL (ZRM)


MySQL-ZRM uses file “last_backup” to store internal state of backup for the backup set. It will create /etc/mysql-zrm/last_backup file automatically during first backup. This means that MySQL-ZRM users should not create a file or directory called “last_backup” in /etc/mysql-zrm directory tree.
