We have a few new servers deployed with 389-ds-base version 184.108.40.206-21. These servers
were deployed in an environment where auto-patching happens and we forgot to disable that
Overnight the servers were updated to 389-ds-base version 220.127.116.11-19. All of the upgraded
servers are now in a bad state. We have tried multiple ways to reinitialize them but
cannot seem to get the servers to work again. We do see in the logs when they d startup
"Abnormal shutdown detected, rebuilding database". But then the server stays in
that state and does nothing that I can tell other than touch the timestamp on the __DB
Are versions 18.104.22.168-21 and 22.214.171.124-19 not compatible? Can anyone suggest a way to
reinit these servers without having to rebuild them?
Reinit has been attempted by doing the following methods:
- Console reinit. (Failed, cannot connect to server)
- Export replica for the server. (Import successful, however gets into the "rebuild
- Copied the entire instance (/var/lib/dirsrv/slapd-myinstance) and restart. Same state
as the one above.
