Indexing JIRA fails but why? Edited

Hello everyone,


I have been stuck with the problem that I can't index Jira for a few days now.

I have tried a few things and found the following three approaches online, but the solutions have not been able to help me.


I run Jira as a server version in a Docker Swarm environment.

After everything didn't work, I upgraded from version 8.7.1 to 8.16. Unfortunately without success. The only thing that has changed is that in the new version I still see the tickets after the indexing gives an error. In the old version, the issues were no longer visible.


Of course I also tried to stop the instance and to remove the cache and the write.lock files. All without success


I would be very very grateful for any further ideas.

You can find the log-file attached.

The errors in your log seem relatedto this post. Have you tried those resolution steps?

The problem was that I run a gluster as the underlying NFS in my Docker cluster. Apparently there is a problem with the synchronisation of the gluster servers. After I had only one server running for test purposes, I was able to index Jira. Thanks for the quick answer
