Redis cluster node with status DISCONNECTED – [ERR] Not all 16384 slots are covered by nodes, and a crude method to deal that …

Posted by FatDBA on November 8, 2021

Hi All,

Today’s post doesn’t follow the usual problem-solution approach, but about a hit and trial that fixed my problem on Redis. This is about a strange problem which I’d encountered while doing a POC, when one of the cluster node, after reboot stopped responding and coming with status as ‘disconnected‘. This was a multi master configuration (4 master nodes) with no slaves, Redis version was 6.2.6 on RHEL7. For simulation purposes, I have invoked four different Redis server instances on the same node/machine using separate ports. One running on port 6391 is not responding.

Note: This is just a test I did on one sandbox environment and it’s might not match your problem, I recommend not to try these steps in production as they are just part of hit-and-trial that I did.

-- Four different Redis Server Instances running on same host.

Cluster check command is showing details only for three healthy masters and throwing error at the end of the check '[ERR] Not all 16384 slots are covered by nodes'. I tried to remove the problematic node using CLUSTER FORGET and re-add it to the cluster using addnode but even that didn’t worked, ideally it should, but it didn’t, and it was still coming with status ‘disconnected‘.

Meanwhile the 'cluster info' command showing known nodes as 4 with cluster state as OK.

So, we tried all possibilities but still our problem endured …

Now, if you have carefully checked the syntax that I’ve used to connect with any of the nodes is via -a option, as there was the password set, so every time it asks me to input the passcode. Just for the trial purpose I removed the password (PassThru parameter in Redis config file) and recreated the cluster, and oddly that trick worked. Of course that is something you will never do in production setups, but can try when learning the database or if not running on production and you’ve the luxury to play around with the database – Just a crude method to deal the issue 🙂

Still it’s incomprehensible for me about how this password removal thing fixed the issue 😦 or maybe I was doing some mistake, I am perplexed and will be troubleshooting it further …
