Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 536555
Installer should check for existing, external db connections prior to commencing install.
Last modified: 2013-12-07 11:01:42 EST
1. Install RHQ, using HA, on two different servers, A and B
2. Attempt to reinstall an RHQ instance on server A.
3. View results:
Installer hangs indefinitely due to the fact that another system (server B) is still using db.
* This is mostly user error. However, it would certainly be a nice addition to the installer to be able to determine if external db connections are being made to the db in question, and toss up a big ol' warning, telling the user that this is the case -- and perhaps reminding them to disable all other instances prior to continuing.
(!) Warning: It appears that there are other active connections to this database. Please assure that all other RHQ instances using this database have been shutdown, prior to continuing.
* I don't really expect this to be completed for 1.1. I'm willing to lower priority, however, if RHQ-892 is implemented as a docs fix.
It would be easy, I think, to have the install fail if any registered server in the DB was in NORMAL operation mode. Throwing a decent exception reminding the user to shut down all instances. Although, it's not clear to me why the install hangs.
