CLUSTER SET-CONFIG-EPOCH config-epoch
This command sets a specific config epoch in a fresh node. It only works when:
- The nodes table of the node is empty.
- The node current config epoch is zero.
These prerequisites are needed since usually, manually altering the
configuration epoch of a node is unsafe, we want to be sure that the node with
the higher configuration epoch value (that is the last that failed over) wins
over other nodes in claiming the hash slots ownership.
However there is an exception to this rule, and it is when a new
cluster is created from scratch. Redis Cluster config epoch collision
resolution algorithm can deal with new nodes all configured with the
same configuration at startup, but this process is slow and should be
the exception, only to make sure that whatever happens, two more
nodes eventually always move away from the state of having the same
CONFIG SET-CONFIG-EPOCH, when a new cluster is created, we can
assign a different progressive configuration epoch to each node before
joining the cluster together.
Simple string reply:
OK if the command was executed successfully, otherwise an error is returned.
