    This wasn’t a problem with key sequence or even double entries as originally thought (though that could still cause similar issues).

    However it was found and is now fixed.

    That makes no sense at all. I don’t disbelieve you, I just don’t know what’s going on.



  • Hmm, 2nd and 3rd time around upgrading RC8 to RC10 I cannot reproduce it.



  • Upgrading from RC8 to RC10 it happened again.

    Nothing to report from the apache log, but here are some snippets from fogproject/bin/error_logs/fog_error_1.3.5-RC-10.log .

  • I had this happen on 19 servers (no storage nodes) of varying versions 1.3.0 + up to and including RC5.

    No relevant indicators or errors in /var/log/httpd/error_log or /opt/trunkgit/fogproject/bin/error_logs .

    @sudburr Can you dig into the apache logs and try to find something related to this issue? I cannot replicate the problem.

    I’m not seeing any issues with this.
