Description Nux 2013-05-07 21:12:41 UTC
Description of problem:
Updating to newly released beta kills off glusterd.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install pre-beta glusterfs (I had some git 3.4 rpm build)
2. yum update from the 3.4-beta1 repo at bits.gluster.org
Actual results:
Running commands such as "gluster volume status" returns:
"Connection failed. Please check if gluster daemon is operational."

Expected results:
command should return status of the volume(s)

Additional info:
Running Centos x86_64, selinux on, XFS
During the "yum update" process I could catch this error in the output:
"error reading information on service glusterfsd: No such file or directory"

Could you attach log files of glusterd and glusterfsd(s) from the node where you see this issue?

I have wiped out my test setup and started again from the old 3.4git RPMs I had then "yum update" to the beta1. Same thing happened, glusterd got killed. I bet anyone could repeat this.
The logs should be quite small.

Also, I got again this error during "yum update":
"error reading information on service glusterfsd: No such file or directory"
But glusterfsd was/is working.

Let me know if you need further info.

As a data point not related to glusterd being killed, the error message about:

  error reading information on service glusterfsd: No such file or directory

... seems to be caused by a missing /etc/init.d/glusterfsd

A BZ for that piece of things has already been filed here:


Comment 5 Niels de Vos 2015-05-17 21:57:32 UTC
GlusterFS 3.7.0 has been released (http://www.gluster.org/pipermail/gluster-users/2015-May/021901.html), and the Gluster project maintains N-2 supported releases. The last two releases before 3.7 are still maintained, at the moment these are 3.6 and 3.5.

This bug has been filed against the 3,4 release, and will not get fixed in a 3.4 version any more. Please verify if newer versions are affected with the reported problem. If that is the case, update the bug with a note, and update the version if you can. In case updating the version is not possible, leave a comment in this bug report with the version you tested, and set the "Need additional information the selected bugs from" below the comment box to "bugs@gluster.org".

If there is no response by the end of the month, this bug will get automatically closed.

Comment 6 Kaleb KEITHLEY 2015-10-07 14:05:55 UTC
GlusterFS 3.4.x has reached end-of-life.

If this bug still exists in a later release please reopen this and change the version or open a new bug.
