I had asked this question in serverfault.Later, i came to know about this site.
I have percona xtrabackup installed in my ubuntu client machine. My local machine IP address is 192.168.0.100. The database that i need to backup is in 192.168.0.200. Is it possible to do the backup of remote server in local server using percona xtrabackup? I tried doing the same using mysqldump in the past but i need to use percona xtrabackup in particular ? Thank you for the response.
