Re: Mariadb 10.1.6, total cluster recovery - gvwstate.dat



Are you sure there are no other errors? I'm not sure that the file being missing is the problem there:

When a node stores the Primary Component state to disk, it saves it as the gvwstate.dat file. The node creates and updates this file when the cluster forms or changes the Primary Component. This ensures that the node retains the latest Primary Component state that it was in. If the node loses connectivity, it has the file to reference. If the node shuts down gracefully, it deletes the file.

You might want to paste the full log exert into a Pastie style website, give a fuller description about the node restart (for instance, were you expecting an IST? an SST? Do the nodes form a cluster at all? etc etc ). That would probably be helpful to someone willing to assist.

Subject: [Maria-discuss] Mariadb 10.1.6,        total cluster recovery - gvwstate.dat


I am using a Mariadb 10.1.6 three node cluster with wsrep. There is a gvwstate.dat file created in /var/lib/mysql, but in the log file when restarting the nodes I see: [Warning] WSREP: access file(gvwstate.dat) failed(No such file or directory).

This seems to be the only thing stopping automatic cluster recovery. Where is mariadb looking for the file, or is there a way of configuring the file location?
