I made a backup and according to Percona it completed successfully. Now I'm trying to prepare it and having the following issue:
./xtrabackup_55 --defaults-file="/etc/my.cnf" --defaults-group="mysqld" --prepare --target-dir=/backup/unprepared/2013_05_21_21_31_41_full xtrabackup: cd to /backup/unprepared/2013_05_21_21_31_41_full xtrabackup: This target seems to be not prepared yet. xtrabackup: No valid checkpoint found. xtrabackup: Error: xtrabackup_init_temp_log() failed.
I've been searching for answers for quite a while and not finding anything conclusive. Any advice on how to resolve this?
Edit: per comment below, here is requested info:
