Created from KB thread: https://mariadb.com/kb/en/mariadb/issues-with-mariadb-columnstore-104/
I reinstalled the MariaDB ColumnStore 1.0.4 from scratch after resetting the locale on all worker nodes. Right now, the installation can be finished successfully and the system status is Active. So it seems that it is not an issue of firewalls. In addition, I used local disks for installation.
I have copied the ssh key from PM1 to other nodes. Also I need copy the ssh key from UM1 to UM2 so that the UM1 can configure the replication between UM1 and UM2.
My configuration is 2UM3PM. I can reproduce the zero size of AlarmConfig.xml after restarting the processes in a certain PM node using the command "/usr/local/mariadb/columnstore/bin/columnstore restart". You are right, I should use mcsadmin to manage the whole system. But I have to try other workarounds when I failed to stop the system. I have checked the settings of firewalls and stopped the service of iptables. I still encountered the issue of stopping the system. I observed that some processes cannot be stopped while the status of PM node was failed. So please help investigate the stop issue. Thank you very much.
