Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-4227) StorageProxy throws NPEs for when there's no hostids for a target
Date Tue, 22 May 2012 15:48:41 GMT


Brandon Williams commented on CASSANDRA-4227:

I believe the more common situation is you're in the process of upgrading to 1.2 and have
a mixed cluster, but need to generate a hint for an older version that hasn't generated a
nodeid yet.

> if there is no host id due to an old node, an info log is generated, but the code continues
to use the null host id causing NPEs in decompose... Should this bypass this code, or perhaps
can the plain ip address be used in this case? don't know.

>                     UUID hostId = StorageService.instance.getTokenMetadata().getHostId(target);
>                     if ((hostId == null) && (Gossiper.instance.getVersion(target)
