[TiDB Usage Environment] Production Environment
[TiDB Version] v8.1.0
[Encountered Problem: Problem Phenomenon and Impact]
The business migrated from MySQL to TiDB using DTS to synchronize data in full + incremental mode to the TiDB database. However, when implementing a rollback plan to synchronize data from TiDB back to MySQL, DTS incremental synchronization encountered issues. After consulting with Alibaba’s official support, it was suggested to set up a pump cluster. According to the official documentation, * starting from TiDB v7.5.0, the data synchronization function of the TiDB Binlog component is no longer supported, which is quite awkward.

I would like to ask everyone, how do you handle rollback plans?
