Index Creation in GemFire fails with a distributed deadlock
- A deadlock may occur during region initialization when index creation happens locally or through a remote request in vFabric GemFire
- In the GemFire log files, you see that each member is waiting for a disk store hosted at an empty host list:
[info 2012/03/29 17:48:00.282 EDT GemFireServer tid=0xa0] Region /SomeRegion, bucket 111 initialized with data from /188.8.131.52:/path/to/data/store/SomeRegion created at timestamp 1332442223821 version 0 diskStoreId 263ba267-d1d5-4abe-9af7-cbb11f09e23a is waiting for the data previously hosted at  to be available
This issue occurs in GemFire 6.6.x and earlier versions when a partitioned region with indexes begins recovering data from a persistence file that may not be the most recent.
To resolve this issue, upgrade to GemFire 7.0 or later.
