DB slave init at boot v1

Open in Dashboard

Published by RightScale on Aug 13, 2009Revision: 4


First Boot Slave Start


This script does two actions:

  • Makes a local Slave copy of the current Master Database
  • Starts this server as a MySQL Slave to a Master.

It also sets up the correct configuration file for a reboot to continue the slave role.

First Launch

Boot-time version of slave initialization. Can be enabled/disabled by setting:

  • SLAVE INIT AT BOOT = true/false

NOTE: Setting the value to $ignore is equivalent to true.

When enabled, it performs the same actions as its counterpart in the operational scripts list: it converts a running DB instance to be slave of an existing Master DB. It will snapshot and pull the necessary files of the running master. It will set the slave dns entry to point to the instance's ip.


No action is taken at all. The MySQL just restarts and resumes its past role. * If the Slave was started it continues. * If the Slave was not started it stays the same.
