Node Not Performing IST

I am working with a 3-node cluster that is already having SST issues and recently came up with a plan to run the cluster with a combination of IST and running Xtrabackup manually while we find a solution for SST (likely via version change, since we are on 5.7).

Gcache size and gcache.recover option have both been appropriately set.

After performing the Xtrabackup process and successfully streaming data from to the target node, IST does not take place. This is after performing all the necessary data unpacking and preparation steps. The grastate.dat file is also in place with the proper values to pick up from that position.

The service on the target node starts and incorrectly finds a saved state of 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000:-1. Following that, it initiates SST and fails.

Not sure why the correct position is not being picked up, but all the data is ready to go from there, and it just gets deleted once the SST process begins. Might I be missing a step?

PXC version: 2.7.34-37
Donor Xtrabackup version: 2.4.26
Joiner Xtrabackup version: 2.4.24
Hashicorp Vault version: 1.11.0

Hi, as far as I can tell grastate.dat is properly set, so you should get an IST. Did you check that all of the files are owned by mysql user?

Yes sir.

We actually ran the chown command shortly before starting the service to make sure.


It looks like you are having some permission issues. There are some operation not permitted errors.
Is SElinux enabled? If so, could you try disabling it?

Do you have the correct permissions and ownership for the data directory?
