Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-10134) Always require replace_address to replace existing address
Date Wed, 23 Mar 2016 14:37:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-10134?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15208507#comment-15208507
] 

Paulo Motta commented on CASSANDRA-10134:
-----------------------------------------

Will this disallow genuine (but unsafe) scenarios where you want to manually replace a node
with the same tokens without going through bootstrap, such as when you lost part of the data
due to a [JBOD disk failure|https://docs.datastax.com/en/cassandra/2.0/cassandra/operations/opsRecoverUsingJBOD.html]?
If so, we should probably update that doc and/or add yet another flag to support those.

> Normally, when a node is started from a clean state with the same address as an existing
down node, it will fail to start with an error like this:
> {noformat}
> ERROR [main] 2015-08-19 15:07:51,577 CassandraDaemon.java:554 - Exception encountered
during startup
> java.lang.RuntimeException: A node with address /127.0.0.3 already exists, cancelling
join. Use cassandra.replace_address if you want to replace this node.

~[main/:na]
> 	at org.apache.cassandra.service.StorageService.prepareToJoin(StorageService.java:783)
~[main/:na]

> {noformat}
> However, if {{auto_bootstrap}} is set to false or the node is in its own seed list, it
will not throw this error and will start normally.  The new node then takes over the host
ID of the old node (even if the tokens are different), and the only message you will see is
a warning in the other nodes' logs:
> {noformat}
> logger.warn("Changing {}'s host ID from {} to {}", endpoint, storedId, hostId);
> {noformat}
> This could cause an operator to accidentally wipe out the token information for a down
node without replacing it.  To fix this, we should check for an endpoint collision even if
{{auto_bootstrap}} is false or the node is a seed.
