I'm trying to follow the directions on this tips page to easily back up some large home videos to Glacier. I followed the steps and everything worked fine until the
git annex copy, at which point it claimed it was successful but had uploaded 0 bytes, as well as dumping the usage message for
glacier-cli at the terminal (without any error):
Emily $ git annex copy --to glacier README copy README (gpg) (checking glacier...) (to glacier...) 100% 0.0 B/s 0s glacier <command> [args] Commands vaults - Operations with vaults jobs - Operations with jobs upload - Upload files to a vault. If the vault doesn't exits, it is created Common args: --access_key - Your AWS Access Key ID. If not supplied, boto will use the value of the environment variable AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID --secret_key - Your AWS Secret Access Key. If not supplied, boto will use the value of the environment variable AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY --region - AWS region to use. Possible values: us-east-1, us-west-1, us-west-2, ap-northeast-1, eu-west-1. Default: us-east-1 Vaults operations: List vaults: glacier vaults Jobs operations: List jobs: glacier jobs <vault name> Uploading files: glacier upload <vault name> <files> Examples : glacier upload pics *.jpg glacier upload pics a.jpg b.jpg ok (Recording state in git...)
glacier vaults also does not show any new vaults, and getting the usage message is obviously not normal.
I tried doing a manual upload to a vault I already had sitting around from some years ago called
TVault, and that looked to work fine:
Emily $ glacier upload TVault README Uploading README to TVault... done. Vault returned ArchiveID [omitted]
(The update date hasn't updated on the management console yet, but I understand that may take up to a day.)
Does anyone know what's going on, or is there at least a way to get a useful error message to output?
