/etc/init.d/mysql bootstrap-pxc is the only way I can start on the 1st node

Hello All,

I have a 3 node cluster that is being moved from one host to a new host. All 3 are VMs on the new host. The initial move took place by importing the *.vdi files, all 3 nodes came up. Then I set up rsync on the new host side to pull the latest data (do this daily, at 3 am).

On the 1st node I successfully started the node with bootstrap-pxc, Then I started the other two nodes with /etc/init.d/mysql start.

Now my problem, I tried stopping the 1st node with /etc/init.d/mysql stop, and then start. This is failing to start, and again I have to bootstrap to get it started, what am I doing wrong? Is there a particular set of steps that I have to take?

Thank you!
