Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-11742) Failed bootstrap results in exception when node is restarted
Date Tue, 10 May 2016 13:48:12 GMT
Tommy Stendahl created CASSANDRA-11742:

             Summary: Failed bootstrap results in exception when node is restarted
                 Key: CASSANDRA-11742
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Tommy Stendahl
            Assignee: Tommy Stendahl
            Priority: Minor

Since 2.2 a failed bootstrap results in a {{org.apache.cassandra.exceptions.ConfigurationException:
Found system keyspace files, but they couldn't be loaded!}} exception when the node is restarted.
This did not happen in 2.1, it just tried to bootstrap again. I know that the workaround is
relatively easy, just delete the system keyspace in the data folder on disk and try again,
but its a bit annoying that you have to do that.
The problem seems to be that the creation of the {{system.local}} table has been moved to
just before the bootstrap begins (in 2.1 it was done much earlier) and as a result its still
in the memtable och commitlog if the bootstrap failes. Still a few values is inserted to the
{{system.local}} table at an earlier point in the startup and they have been flushed from
the memtable to an sstable. When the node is restarted the {{SystemKeyspace.checkHealth()}}
is executed before the commitlog is replayed and therefore only see the sstable with an incomplete
{{system.local}} table and throws an exception.
I think we could fix this very easily by forceFlush the system keyspace in the {{StorageServiceShutdownHook}},
I have included a patch that does this.
