Description of problem:
as part of RFE testing of bz# 1304593 - Split-brain occurring with one cable pull
I tried to check if the gfid split brain gets resolved based on different policies.
However It doesn't get resolved when i set the cluster.favorite-child-policy to mtime
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.set cluster.favorite-child-policy to say mtime
2.create a gfid split brain situation
3.now check if the automatic healing feature resolves this
the split brain is not resolved and hence IO error on client as below
[root@dhcp35-196 rep]# ll
ls: cannot access f1: Input/output error
-?????????? ? ? ? ? ? f1
upstream patch : https://review.gluster.org/16878
Isn't the patch already part of 3.4.0? Does it need only qualification? Can we please take this bug to the closure?
Even though the patch is part of 3.4.0, the automatic split-brain resolution policy as a feature (BZ #1304593) has failed-qa. It needs some improvements and bug fixes. Currently the feature itself is not qualified. Since this bug is going to be fixed using the same policies, I think it is better to wait for the other issues to be fixed in the feature before qualifying this.
