**Reported in Launchpad by Thomas Maerz last update 12-08-2016 13:37:35

https://mariadb.com/kb/en/mariadb/compression/ and https://mariadb.com/kb/en/mariadb/backup-restore-and-import-clients-xtrabackup/
states that "XtraBackup (at least as of 2.2.12) will not work with MariaDB 10.1 encryption or compression."

I can find no further information on this in Percona, MySQL, MariaDB's documentation or bug trackers or any blogs online.

I think many people may be interested to know why XtraBackup won't work with MariaDB encryption, if that is still the case, and what fixes or workarounds may be available as configuring backups for MariaDB Galera with compression is a not a straightforward path.

Hi Thomas,

Thank you for the report.

Percona XtraBackup does not work with MariaDB 10.2 or greater, or with MariaDB 10.1 if encryption or compression is used, or when innodb_page_size is set to some value other than 16K. See Mariabackup instead.

Also, check https://mariadb.com/kb/en/library/percona-xtrabackup/   which describes limitation and condition to use xtarbackup with MariaDB.
