Subject [jira] [Created] (GEODE-4176) locator creates "locator0view.dat" file when started with port 0
Date Tue, 02 Jan 2018 16:35:04 GMT
Bruce Schuchardt created GEODE-4176:

             Summary: locator creates "locator0view.dat" file when started with port 0
                 Key: GEODE-4176
             Project: Geode
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: membership, tests
            Reporter: Bruce Schuchardt

The locator was modified some time ago to allow unit tests to start it with port 0 so that
it will do a wildcard bind.  When that was done the startup sequence wasn't changed to allow
the peer-to-peer TcpHandler to know the bound port number & so it creates its persistent
view file with port 0 instead of the bound port number.  It's possible that if such a file
is left around a subsequent test that starts a locator with port 0 will pick up an old locator0view.dat
file and attempt to join a distributed system that no longer exists.

The startup sequence needs to be modified to allow the handlers to know the bound port number
when they are initialized.
