When backup up with "Backup Extra Data" checked, there are a few problems:

  • Tags are not removed during every restore path (e.g. PFI during installer as with #7634 for RRD, ECL, or restore_backup() in general), so they may remain in config.xml indefinitely
  • Duplicate tags are not removed on restore as is done for rrddata
  • Error when restoring a config generated after backup, restore, then backup again due to the duplicated tags (Like #8994 for RRD)
  • Backup Extra Data defaults to on, should be off.

The PR Addresses the last three points but not the first.

Part of the first one will need fixed in the src repo in the installer, like

The ECL method ( will need to be changed as well so it's similar to restoring from the GUI

Tested in a recent build and am seeing that the extra data is being cleared. No duplicate tags are present on second restore since the tags are cleared after the initial restore.
