Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-10872) Debian Package does not prompt the user to review the config files; it just replaces them causing trouble (since the daemon starts by default)

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-10872?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15060160#comment-15060160

Michael Shuler commented on CASSANDRA-10872:
--------------------------------------------

2.0 has been EOL for a while now, 2.1 is close to EOL (will probably get 1-2 more releases).
This is why I marked 2.1.x as the fixver.

> We run Cassandra 2.0.16 on Ubuntu 12.04 and were trying to upgrade to 2.0.17 due to CASSANDRA-9662.
The problem is that during the upgrade the we were not prompted how to handle cassandra-env.sh
and cassandra-rackdc.properties. 
> The output from the upgrade:
> Setting up cassandra (2.0.17) ...
> Installing new version of config file /etc/cassandra/cassandra-env.sh ...
> Installing new version of config file /etc/cassandra/cassandra-rackdc.properties ...
> This meant that the nodes started automatically after the install with the wrong DC name.

> I don't think that these config files should have been replaced without the admin being
asked; this doesn't appear to comply with standard Debian packages.
> Secondly if CASSANDRA-2356 was implemented the problem would not be as severe; i.e. it
would be possible to workaround this issue. Whereas currently, there is no way to prevent
the node when upgraded from starting in the wrong DC.
