      **Reported in Launchpad by Ernie Souhrada last update 11-01-2016 11:10:47

      When attempting to join a fresh, new node to an existing cluster, if there are multiple "log_bin" or "log-bin" directives in the system's my.cnf, the xtrabackup-v2 SST method fails. On systems such as Ubuntu/Debian, which tend to use include files, the likelihood of this occuring is apparently higher than you might think. However, RHEL/CentOS is also impacted (tests below are from CentOS 6.5):

      To reproduce...
      Bootstrap a single PXC node with whatever configuration you want. Set wsrep_sst_method=xtrabackup-v2

      On the second node, add two "log_bin" or "log-bin" directives, such as:

      log_bin = mysql-bin
      log_bin = mysql-bin

      It doesn't matter if you use log-bin or log_bin, nor does it matter if the paths are identical. Try to start the second node.

      On the DONOR, you'll see the following in the MySQL error log:

      On the JOINER, you'll see this:

      Note the "dirname: extra operand" line from the joiner's mysqld.log.

      The issue comes from lines 779 - 789 of the wsrep_sst_xtrabackup-v2 script, and also the parse_cnf function in this script, lines 229-238. Running just the parse_cnf function against a my.cnf that contains two log_bin (or log-bin) entries returns the following:

      /var/log/mysql/mysql-bin /var/log/mysql/mysql-bin

      Which, when passed to 'dirname', gives you the error mentioned above:

      (root@pxc-02 14:20:25)# dirname /var/log/mysql/mysql-bin /var/log/mysql/mysql-bin
      dirname: extra operand `/var/log/mysql/mysql-bin'
      Try `dirname --help' for more information.

      Anyway, once you comment out one of the log_bin/log-bin directives, SST proceeds without issue. The regular xtrabackup (v1) SST method is not impacted.


      Here is one simple way to fix it by always taking the first value returned; you may prefer some other approach.
