gvwstate.dat not found during pxc startup

datadir=/xyz <-- note no trailing /

show global datadir shows /xyz/ <-- note trailing /

error log says /xyz//gvwstate.dat is missing. which is correct but /xyz/gvwstate.dat does exist.

so add explicity wsrep_data_home=/xyz <-- no trailing /

and it sitll complains that /xyz/gvwstate.dat does not exists but it does.

two possible errors?

rhel 7

It perfectly works fine for me, and I don’t have to add wsrep_data_home=
