I am looking for some information regarding the backup and restore of a
Riak instance. I am currently using version riak_2.0.0beta1-1 and whenever
we run the riak-admin backup command I receive the following error below.
If this is not the proper way to backup an instance then I need to know the
process of restoring the data once I have a full backup of the leveldb,
ring, and configuration files.

command sytax:

*riak-admin backup riak at 10.XXX.XXX.XXX cookiename /tmp/riak-bkup.bkup all*


Riak backup error

...from ['riak at 1*0.XXX.XXX.XXX*']

{"init terminating in do_boot",{{badmatch,{error,{not_a_log_file,"

Crash dump was written to: erl_crash.dump

init terminating in do_boot ()
