[Gluster-users] Upgrading while still having heal pending entries experiences

Hi all,

We are facing problems with our current configuration in replica scheme 
and have many unhealed directory entries with "error 22" in the shd log, 
that then loop infinitely and so remain stuck.

> ist ungültig}] *

There is a different thread regarding our non-healing volume and we 
followed the various suggestions (for which we thank everyone so much).

What we were wondering while assessing the risks of any of the 
last-resort suggested operations (e.g. removing-re-adding brick) is how 
high on that scale is upgrading our glusterfs version online or offline 
(and if makes some difference in terms of risk to do it offline respect 
to online for example).

Did you have any experience on this? We know the recommendation is to 
upgrade only after no healing entries are reported, but perhaps someone 
has had the same need as us (the behaviour is much like a bug as we have 
tried really many approaches) and had a successful story upgrading 
without having all entries healed before starting? The idea behind it is 
that if it is a bug that has been fixed now, then the healing entries 
will get "unstuck". We are currently on 9.2.

Best regards.
