Symptoms

If the primary blade of a chassis is reset, once it rejoins the cluster as a secondary its configuration may fail to load with errors that look like this: 01070088:3: The requested object name (/Common/default-eviction-policy) is invalid. 01070935:3: Unexpected exception caught in MCPProcessor::rm_DBLowHighWide(). 01070734:3: Configuration error: MCPProcessor::check_initialization: 01070734:3: Configuration error: URL category (/Common/Abortion) cannot be deleted. It is being used by a URL filter.

Impact

The impact of this issue is that mcpd will not finish startup unless the workaround steps are performed.

Conditions

This only affects chassis.

Workaround

Log in to the affected blade, remove the binary database (/bin/rm -v /var/db/mcp*), and restart all services on the blade (bigstart restart).

Fix Information

Formerly, the primary blade of a chassis is reset, once it rejoins the cluster as a secondary its configuration may fail to load with errors that look like this: 01070088:3: The requested object name (/Common/default-eviction-policy) is invalid. 01070935:3: Unexpected exception caught in MCPProcessor::rm_DBLowHighWide(). 01070734:3: Configuration error: MCPProcessor::check_initialization: 01070734:3: Configuration error: URL category (/Common/Abortion) cannot be deleted. It is being used by a URL filter. The system will now load successfully and not hit this error.
