We are still experiencing this issue, and have been unable to find any more information regarding it. Is there any advice we coudl take when looking at this?
Is there a way we could set maybe a time flag on one of the nodes, so that it waits a certain amount of time (on noticing another node) before sending any requests to it?
What AS release and what version of JGroups (if you changed the default)?
Thanks for the reply
We are using JBboss 5.0.0. Beta4, and JGroups 2.6.1
Suggest you use 5.0.0.CR2; there have been improvements in the group formation logic since beta4.
If you still have issues, please post a description of exactly what you are seeing.
There's no way to prevent joining a group until all other services have started; a number of services depend on properly being part of the group.
