    HornetQ replication fails, getting timeouts

    javahamburg Newbie

      I'm trying to get the new HornetQ 2.3.0.alpha replication running, on two different hosts. When I try it on my local machine it does work more or less (separated hornetq with different ports). I will explain it in more detail shortly.

      I use the plain vanilla HornetQ 2.3.0.alpha on latest 64bit Xubuntu (local tests) and CentOs (distributed), Oracle JDK 6u33 (but also tried other versions).

       

      Now when testing localy, I use a different port for the backup (5446). I start the live, then the backup server. The backup syncs with the live. I kill/stop the live. The backup will continue to work instead, and requests against the backup work (which now operates on 5445). Now I want to start the live again, which does not work, since the backup uses the 5445. Therefore my next test was to start the live/backup on separate machines.

       

      On separated hosts, the live-server starts as expected. When I start the backup, it hangs when he copies some data directores. After that he gets a timeout. There is not firewall or anything else between them, I already checked that twice and with my local admin. Telnet'ing from the backup-host to the live-host works fine.

       

      Here is the exception I get on the backup, I append my configuration below:

      I used the default configuration files as base (config/stand-alone/non-clustered), and attached the hornetq-configuration.xml and hornetq-jms.xml for live and backup.

       

      When I created the sandbox locally, it uses the same configuration, except that for backup the hornetq-beans.xml is changed to move the ports from 1099/1098 to 1199/1198.

      I'm working on this now for days, and tried already various combinations, so please excuse me If I missed something. Thanks a lot!
