Description Sam Batschelet 2020-02-10 13:42:15 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1801196 +++

Description of problem: In some circumstances, raft can stop before purge loop exists. Basically the result is that etcd can remove wal files that are still needed to replay state. So when etcd is restarted it will fail with a catastrophic error.

C | etcdserver: open wal error: wal: file not found.


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

How reproducible: rare

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results: catastrophic error

Expected results: etcd does not fail with unrecoverable catastrophic error
