Single node not starting properly during cluster restart
SummarySometimes one node in a cluster does not start cleanly when the cluster is restarted. When each node is started manually one-by-one, the instance comes up fine.
2016-07-05 22:40:07,969 [your_server] [ STANDARD] [ ] ( etier.impl.EngineStartup) ERROR - PegaRULES initialization failed. Server: your_server
Steps to ReproduceRestart the cluster.
Root CauseA defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules. Stale node information exists in the cluster node cache due to an improper shutdown. As the cache is now in an inconsistent state, it does not allow the node to start up.
ResolutionThis issue is addressed in Pega 7.2.1.
