Error uploading backups to S3

I’ve upgraded to the most recent Gitlab version and am having issues with my backups copying up to S3. I’m using the Fog libraries and defining my variables in my gitlab.rb script (I have an EE installation using Omnibus)

Running the rake task sudo gitlab-rake gitlab:backup:create aborts during the upload to my remote storage.
Excon::Errors::SocketError: getaddrinfo: Name or service not known (SocketError)

Has anyone else seen this or know what I’m missing to upload?


Check your region. I got the same error when I accidentally had “eu-west-2” instead of “us-west-2” configured.

Thanks @volker, that’s exactly what it was. I was using the explicit “Oregon” region instead of us-west-2.
