Fixed In Version: glusterfs-3.12.2-2 Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
Geo-replication uses changelog feature and enables it as part of geo-rep session creation. But the command to disable changelog doesn't warn about geo-replication being configured and disabled successfully. With this fix, a check is added while disabling changelog to check for a geo-replication session. Hence, while disabling changelog, a warning is generated for the user about an existing geo-replication session(if any).

Hi Rochelle,

Before fixing this, let's get to know how does it affect geo-replication.
I think geo-replication should go to hybrid crawl if the changelogs are not available and would affect unlinks and rename syncing.


Could you confirm this?
