How to transfer a Minio bucket without loosing version IDs

gr flag

I have a MinIO bucket that I need to transfer from one server to another.

mc --insecure mirror source/my-bucket dest/my-bucket

This MinIO bucket is versioned, and I use the MinIO version UUIDs as document references in my application.

I noticed however that when we perform a mirroring of a bucket to another place, the version UUIDs are lost (ie they are recreated).

In the official documentation, it is said that MinIO doesn't support client-managed version ID allocation.

So how can we keep a constant reference over object versions, when moving a bucket from one place to another?

I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
