Version End of Life. 31 July 2020
Release 6.0.4 is a bugfix release.
When installing from an RPM, the installation would
automatically restart the connector during the installation.
This behavior can now be controlled by setting the parameter
no-connectors within the ini
configuration. This will prevent tpm from
restarting the connectors during the automated update
Cross-site replicators within a Composite Active/Active deployment
can now be configured to point to Replicas by default, and to
prefer Replicas over Primaries during operation. In a standard
deployment, cross-site replicators work via Primaries at each
cluster site to read the remote information. To configure the
service to use Replicas in preference to Primaries, use the
option to tpm. Both Primaries and Replicas remain
in the list of possible hosts, if no Replicas are availble during
a switch or failover event, then a Primary will be used.
Issues: CT-776, CT-783
You can now enable an option so that when the site comes back online, the connector will disconnect all these connections that couldn't get to their preferred site so that they will then reconnect to the expected site with the appropriate affinity.
When not enabled, connections will continue to use the server originally configured until they disconnect through normal attrition. This is the default option.
Note that this only applies to bridge mode. In proxy mode, relevancy of connected data source will be re-evaluated before every transaction.
To enable this option, use the tpm option
In a Composite Active/Active deployment, once a datasource has been welcomed to the cluster, individual clusters within the composite may not agree on the overall state of the composite and individual clusters.
Long service names within cctrl could cause
output to fail when displaying information. The underlying issue
has been fixed. Because long service names can cause formatting
issues, a new option,
has been added which can be used to configure the minimum column
width used to display information.
Issues: CT-773, CT-926
During the lifetime of the cluster, switches may happen and the
current Primary may well be a different node than what is
reflected in the static ini file in the
master= line. Normally, this difference is
ignored during and update or an upgrade.
However, if a customer has some kind of procedure (i.e.
automation) which hand-edits the ini configuration file
master= line at some point, and such
hand-edits do not reflect the current reality at the time of the
update/upgrade, an update/upgrade will fail and the cluster may
be left in an indeterminate state.
The best practice is to NOT change the
master= line in the INI configuration file
Changed tpm check
WARN to ERROR to prevent changed
lines in ini files from breaking updates and upgrades.
Even with this fix, there is still a window of opportunity for
failure. The update will continue, passing the
CurrentTopologyCheck test and potentially
leaving the cluster in an indeterminate state if the
master= option is set to a hostname that is
not the current Primary or the current host.
Release 6.0.4 is a bugfix release.
If no service is specified then using trepctl and multiple services are configured, then an error would be reported, but no list of potential services would be provided. This has been updated so that trepctl will output the list available services and potential commands.
