    • Bug behavior facts:


      Replication: Failover on slave fails after network connection is broken (network cable to slave pulled out); database is shut down due to an "unexpected error".
      Same experiment with a replicated embedded database on Linux (FC5) and Windows resulted in success on Linux and failure on Windows.

      Documentation (admin guide, "Replication failure handling") says:

      "Slave loses connection with master: The slave tries to reestablish the connection with the master by listening on the specified host and port. It will not give up until it is explicitly requested to do so by either the failover=true or stopSlave=true connection URL attribute. If a failover is requested, the slave applies all received log records and boots the database as described in Forcing a failover."

      Slave console:

      java -jar lib\derbyrun.jar ij

      ij version 10.4

      ij> connect 'jdbc:derby:replicDB;startSlave=true;slaveHost=';

      ERROR XRE08: Replication slave mode started successfully for database 'replicDB'. Connection refused because the database is in replication slave mode


      ij> connect 'jdbc:derby:replicDB';

      ERROR 08004: Connection refused to database 'replicDB' because it is in replication slave mode.

      ij> – network cable unplugged from slave

      ij> connect 'jdbc:derby:replicDB;failover=true';

      ERROR XRE11: Could not perform operation 'failover' because the database 'replicDB' has not been booted.

      ij> connect 'jdbc:derby:replicDB';


      The slave's derby.log reported the following after the network cable was pulled and the failover command was issued:

      ---- BEGIN REPLICATION ERROR MESSAGE (4/22/08 2:01 PM) ----

      Replication slave got a fatal error for database 'replicDB'. Replication will be stopped.

      ERROR XRE03: Unexpected replication error. See derby.log for details.
