8.6. Provision or Reprovision a Slave
The command performs three operations automatically:
Performs a backup of a remote slave
Copies the backup to the current host
Restores the backup
When using tungsten_provision_slave you must be logged
in to the slave that has failed or that you want to reprovision. You
cannot reprovision a slave remotely.
To use tungsten_provision_slave :
Log in to the failed slave.
Select the active slave within the dataservice that you want to use to
reprovision the failed slave. You may use the master but this will
impact performance on that host. If you use MyISAM tables the operation
will create some locking in order to get a consistent snapshot.
Run tungsten_provision_slave specifying the source
you have selected:
NOTE >> Put alpha replication service offline
NOTE >> Create a mysqldump backup of host2 »
NOTE >> host2 >> Create mysqldump in »
NOTE >> Load the mysqldump file
NOTE >> Put the alpha replication service online
NOTE >> Clear THL and relay logs for the alpha replication service
The default backup service for the host will be used;
mysqldump can be used by specifying the
tungsten_provision_slave handles the cluster status,
backup, restore, and repositioning of the replication stream so that
restored slave is ready to start operating again.
When using a Multisite/Multimaster topology the additional replicator must
be put offline before restoring data and put online after completion.
