Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-6523) "Unable to contact any seeds!" with multi-DC cluster and listen != broadcast address
Date Fri, 23 May 2014 15:37:02 GMT


Brandon Williams commented on CASSANDRA-6523:

Part of the problem, is we can't know a seed's broadcast_address without, of course, them
gossiping it to us.  We could possibly extend the 'talked to a seed' check to loop through
the endpoints we know about and look for a matching broadcast_address, though that's a bit
expensive and is kind of cheating since we want to know we talked to a seed directly, not
that we were told about a seed, but I don't think that actually matters.  I'll have to think
about it some.

bq. Barring a more clever check I suggest changing the message to something like "Seed check
failed! At least one boardcast_address must match IPs from seed list".

Well, that's not entirely accurate either, since if you aren't using BCA at all, it's confusing.
 We could print out the seeds with the error though, so at least between that and the handshaking
messages you'd get a clue.

>         Environment: 1.2.13ish
>            Reporter: Chris Burroughs
>            Assignee: Brandon Williams
>            Priority: Minor
> New cluster:
>  * Seeds: list of 6 internal IPs
>  * listen address: internal ip
>  * broadcast: external ip
> Two DC cluster, using GPFS where the external IPs are NATed.  Clusters fails to start
with "Unable to contact any seeds!"
>  * Fail: Try to start a seed node
>  * Fail: Try to start two seed nodes at the same time in the same DC
>  * Success: Start two seed nodes at the same time in different DCs.
> Presumably related to CASSANDRA-5768
