im trying to backup data to a spaces bucket, since spaces should be s3 compliant i assume this should work, see: https://restic.readthedocs.io/en/stable/manual.html#amazon-s3
$ restic -r s3:nyc3.digitaloceanspaces.com/mysupernicebucket init create backend at s3:nyc3.digitaloceanspaces.com/mysupernicebucket failed: client.BucketExists: Get http://169.254.169.254/latest/meta-data/iam/security-credentials: dial tcp 169.254.169.254:80: i/o timeout
i hate to say so but “yesterday it was working okay”.
weird thing is i see the same ip as the aws user data endpoint appearing in the error message. whats going on here? what am i missing?
