Subject [jira] [Updated] (CASSANDRA-4427) Restarting a failed bootstrap instajoins the ring
Date Thu, 12 Jul 2012 19:21:34 GMT


Brandon Williams updated CASSANDRA-4427:

    Attachment: 4427.txt

Patch to remove the check for non-system tables.  As far as I can tell, it makes no sense
to have this condition, since you can partially stream some data during bootstrap, then die.
 If you try again without clearing the machine, instajoin.

It looks like this condition was added as part of a fix for CASSANDRA-3219 in commit de829f17,
but the check was inverted and later fixed in CASSANDRA-3285.  However, the reasoning behind
having such a check at all is never explained and I can't see why it should be there.

> I think when we made auto_bootstrap = true the default, we broke the check for the bootstrap
flag, creating a dangerous situation.
