Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):glusterfs-

How reproducible: Didn't try to reproduce. 

This crash happened while restoring snapshot in geo-rep setup. This crash was side effect something unknown happened on the setup. Not sure how to reproduce this glusterd. Hence mentioning following steps when it happened. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create geo-rep setup. 
2. take multiple snapshots with geo-rep while IOs are happening on the master (follow steps to create snapshot with geo-rep)
3. restore to 2 immediate snapshots then restore one of the older snapshots. 
(follow the steps to restore snaps with geo-rep)
4. In the case where this crash happened, after the the third snapshot, geo-rep start failed with "Staging failed on Error: state-file entry missing in the config file(/var/lib/glusterd/geo-replication/master_10.70.43.170_slave/gsyncd.conf)"
Staging failed on Error: state-file entry missing in the config file(/var/lib/glusterd/geo-replication/master_10.70.43.170_slave/gsyncd.conf)

5: After this restarting glusterd on the node where all the commands executed resulted in glusterd crash both the nodes where staging failed, which was actually because it failed to create geo-rep status file. 

Actual results: glusterd crashed when it failed to  create geo-rep status file

Expected results: glusterd shouldn't crash. 

Additional info:

Comment 2 Avra Sengupta 2014-07-14 11:38:45 UTC
In a node, where the status file fails to be created during glusterd startup coz of any issue(it maybe a runner_run failure or any other issue), this bug will cause gluserd to crash. The issue will remain consistent as long as the status file creation fails, and glusterd will keep crashing.

Fix at https://code.engineering.redhat.com/gerrit/#/c/29533/

Comment 4 Vijaykumar Koppad 2014-08-13 07:49:34 UTC
Verified in the build glusterfs- 

1. Since there are no proper steps to reproduce, verification was done using gdb and setting breakpoint at _local_gsyncd_start. 
2. This can be verified by making glusterd restart gsyncd processes and setting few variables to hit the particular scenario.
