  • whether it is failed or created successfully

  • reasons for the failure

  • timestamp

Known issue

Issue Number Issue Description


If your backup does not complete within the timeout value of 24 hours, then the backup eventually fails on the target cluster.

Workaround: Since the backup process will keep running inside the data service pod(s), you can terminate the backup process.

Known issues

Issue Number Issue Description


In the Metrics of a PostgreSQL deployment, under Application Details, the Server Session Count chart shows wrong Total count.


As an Admin, after adding a backup target, you can only edit the Name of the backup target but cannot change the Cloud account, Bucket name, Container name and Region of the backup target.

To change the fields, Pure Storage recommends to delete the backup target and a new backup target with the desired options in the fields.

Known issues

Issue Number Issue Description


When multiple PDS data services are deployed on the Portworx cluster, deployments may fail due to a lack of free space on Portworx volumes. The mounting file system enters read-only mode when the storage reaches 90% of its capacity, and it may be unavailable if some Portworx node pools go offline.

As PDS deployments depend on Portworx volumes, ensure that Portworx clusters are running without errors to avoid a data service deployment failure.

Announcing general availability for Portworx Data Services!

Known issues

Issue Number Issue Description


If you delete backup credentials manually using the pxctl credentials delete command, PDS fails to detect and recreate the credentials on the target cluster.


In some edge cases when all RabbitMQ pods are terminated at once, the first pod fails to start and the pod’s log contains the following messages: Waiting for Mnesia tables for 30000 ms, X retries left.

Resolution: Run kubectl exec -n <namespace> <pod_name> /srv/pds/pds-utils/ to fix the issue.


Due to a bug in PostgreSQL exporter, an extra stale database connection does not allow deletion of a PostgreSQL database and shows the following error.
DROP DATABASE "database name"; ERROR: database "database name" is being accessed by other users DETAIL: There is 1 other session using the database.

Force drop: Use DROP DATABASE <database-name> WITH (FORCE); instead of DROP DATABASE <database-name>; It may fail if the database user does not have permissions to terminate existing database connections.

Exclude database from metrics collection: You can temporarily or permanently exclude a database from metrics collection which will not allow the postgresql exporter to connect to the database.

  1. Create new application configuration template called Exclude database metrics.

  2. Add deployment time variable called PG_EXPORTER_EXCLUDE_DATABASES.

  3. Set PG_EXPORTER_EXCLUDE_DATABASES to <database-name> when creating or editing a PostgreSQL data service deployment.

  4. Use DROP DATABASE <database-name>, to remove the database.
