Configuring restore to continue after a download failure

About this task

Override the default agent configuration to allow the restore operation to continue after a file download fails. If a file fails to download from S3 during a restore, the restore operation fails by default. Doing so allows a future partial restore using any successfully transferred files.


  1. Locate the agent configuration file address.yaml. The location of this file depends on the type of installation:

    • Package installations: /var/lib/datastax-agent/conf/address.yaml

    • Tarball installations: install_location/conf/address.yaml

  2. Open to edit the address.yaml and set the restore_on_transfer_failure option to true:

    restore_on_transfer_failure: true

  3. Restart the agent.
