Bug Description

Juju 2.4.3, controller running on Trusty.

When I try to create a backup of the controller model:

~$ juju create-backup -m controller
ERROR while creating backup archive: while dumping juju state database: error dumping databases: error executing "/usr/lib/juju/bin/mongodump": ERROR: unrecognised option '--sslAllowInvalidCertificates'; ; Export MongoDB data to BSON files.; ; options:; --help produce help message; -v [ --verbose ] be more verbose (include multiple times; for more verbosity e.g. -vvvvv); --version print the program's version and exit; -h [ --host ] arg mongo host to connect to ( <set ; name>/s1,s2 for sets); --port arg server port.

Hence, we have no backups of this (production) environment.

I'm pretty sure this will be additional flags for backup being passed to an older mongo (probably 2.4 in trusty).

Changed in juju:
importance: Undecided → High
status: New → Triaged
tags: added: backup-restore

yep. Trusty runs mongo 2.4 which doesn't have the same flags as 3.2 on
