Original Estimate: Not Specified
Environment: PHP 5.3.3 (cli) (built: Jun 27 2012 12:25:48)
libcouchbase1-1.0.4-1
CentOS release 5.8 (Final), x86_64
Couchbase Server 1.8.1 Enterprise

Attachments: GZip Archive php-ext-couchbase.tar.gz    

 Description   
scenario:
1. Start PHP client in a loop setting and getting against a 2 node cluster
2. Click failover to kick a node out, click rebalance to make it unassociated
3. Walk through the setup wizard on that node, re-add it to the cluster
4. After adding, click rebalance

Expected behavior:
During rebalance in step 4, which is an add node scenario, no timeouts are expected.

Observed behavior:
During rebalance in step 4, I see timeouts from PHP, and they continue even after the rebalance has completed.

A packet capture of this same issue, with the client on MacOS X and CentOS 5.8 servers with Couchbase Server 1.8.1 enterprise edition may be found at http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1537838/failover-maybe-issue

Note from discussion, this is a possible fix, not sure.

Sergey and I reproduced the issue, and it's related to the series of steps outlined above. The underlying libcouchbase is not receiving the updated configuration for some reason, and thus is sending items to the wrong node, and then they're timing out.

Sergey will do more work on finding the specific cause.

The patch http://review.couchbase.org/19599 and aforementioned http://review.couchbase.org/19563 solves the issue.

To reproduce it for sure you should failover the node is currently used by client to listen config changes. (Usually it is the first successfull node from initial node list)
