Server forgetting config files

Description

With 0.9.4, it looks like if I remove a config file and its directory from the server's Cfg directory and then add it again, the server doesn't notice that it came back. First I add a file:

alcf-tb7:/var/lib/bcfg2/Cfg/etc # mkdir foo
alcf-tb7:/var/lib/bcfg2/Cfg/etc # cd foo
alcf-tb7:/var/lib/bcfg2/Cfg/etc/foo # vi foo

Doing a client run installs the file correctly. Next I remove it and add it again:

alcf-tb7:/var/lib/bcfg2/Cfg/etc/foo # cd ..
alcf-tb7:/var/lib/bcfg2/Cfg/etc # rm -rf foo
alcf-tb7:/var/lib/bcfg2/Cfg/etc # mkdir foo
alcf-tb7:/var/lib/bcfg2/Cfg/etc # cd foo
alcf-tb7:/var/lib/bcfg2/Cfg/etc/foo # vi foo

Now running the client, I get:

Incomplete information for entry ConfigFile:/etc/foo; cannot install

and the server says:

Jun 29 10:59:55 alcf-tb7 bcfg2-server[1d6ff8880ff5f27e1982d19f3bc02db19eeef593] (SVN r1949): Failed to locate basefile for /etc/foo
Jun 29 10:59:55 alcf-tb7 bcfg2-server[1d6ff8880ff5f27e1982d19f3bc02db19eeef593] (SVN r1949): Failed to bind entry: ConfigFile /etc/foo

Restarting the server clears it up and things act normally again. FAM events are acknowledged by the server throughout the removal/re-addition process.

I can confirm this with SVN trunk.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

Gogo and I can both no longer replicate this. I think that it is possible that the fix in [48f271d515c26d3984cae9088953946a49f3ea69] (SVN r3887) may have fixed this as well, since reliable recreation behavior is dependent on reliable deletion behavior. I am closing this for now, we can re-open it if this is still a problem with 0.9.5.X.
