RDS Snapshot to S3 failing with snapshot engine unsupported error

0

Hello everyone

I would like to export a snapashot of my RDS Aurora Mysql db to S3 but I get the following error at the end of the exporting form. My snapshot is Aurora Mysql standard encrypted.

The specified db snapshot engine mode isn't supported and can't be exported.

But according to all doc I found and most of all this one : link

All the versions should be working.

So what am I missing to be stuck here ?

Thanks for your help

Hello.

Check the Aurora MySQL version. While the documentation might say all versions are supported, it's possible that there are specific minor versions or patches that have issues or are not yet supported.

Hello

the version is 5.7.mysql_aurora.2.11.3. Where could I check if it is this version the problem ? And if it is how can I manage de resolve the issue ? should I restore the snapshot in a new Cluster with a more recent version and try to backup again ?

Re,

I tried multiple versions: aurora PSQL 11.18 and 10.12 and 5.7.mysql_aurora.2.07.1

Same error via console or CLI : The specified db snapshot engine mode isn't supported and can't be exported.

I used the CLI to get the EngineMode and there it is : Serverless. But it is not displayed anywhere on the Console. However my db instance is NOT Serverless, at least since 1 year. It was before. Maybe it is reason why it is stil considered serverless. How Could I fix this ?

Thank you for your question.

RDS and Aurora are different DB services.

In the link you provided, it only talks about the RDS service and not the Aurora database.

You can take a look at this section of the official Aurora documentation to see how to export a snapshot to Amazon S3.

Also visit Exporting DB cluster snapshot data to Amazon S3.

Finally, you can take a look to this article, How can I resolve issues exporting Amazon Aurora snapshots to Amazon S3?

Hello

Thank you for your answer. In the link you provided it says

All currently available Aurora MySQL engine versions support exporting DB cluster snapshot data to Amazon S3.

So I basically assumed it will be my case.

But if we look in the limitations of aurora serverless v1 we can see the export is not possible.

Now my RDS Aurora Cluster is no more serverless. So the new question is more : How can my snapshots are still considered serverless and how can I change that ?

What do you think ?

Thanks and have a nice day.
