[Gluster-users] SELF HEAL - GlusterFSD service.

In my setup, I just need to have a 2-node replicated volume. DATA CONSISTENCY BETWEEN THE BRICKS IS THE PRIMARY CONCERN. So does that mean, 3.3.2 is a better option. At present I'm using
"glusterfs 3.3.1 built on Oct 11 2012 21:49:37".

Thanks & Regards,
Bobby Jacob

I'm not sure there was ever a bug reported.
I was testing a 2 machine cluster with replica 2 and I was doing a simple write then power failed one. The other machine took over and I brought the one back up and it caused split-brain. I looked at the code and found self-heal was not activating correctly. I looked at the 3.3.2qa2 (at the time) and saw the code was changed. I switched to the 3.3.2qa2 code and never had that issue again.

"Automatic" Self Heal does not work well on 3.3.1 you will need to move to 3.3.2 there are a lot of updates to it.
What bugzilla reports are you referring to?

GlusterFSD service is running on all the bricks. But self heal is not
happening. I restart glusterd service, still nothing.

How are you determining that self heal is not happening? What does gluster volume status list when self heal is not happening?

When I do "service glusterfsd restart". The services stops but doesn't
start. Once I restart the server, the self heal resumes. PLEASE ADVICE>

Have you attempted "gluster volume start force" to restart services that are not active?
