#2403 new defect

directories not created using helper

Reported by: lpirl Owned by:
Priority: normal Milestone: undecided
Component: code-mutable Version: 1.10.0
Keywords: mutable directory upload-helper Cc: tahoe-lafs.org@…
Launchpad Bug:


Assume we have a grid with a star topology (maybe because you can't get all but one nodes out of their NAT).

One node is the helper for the whole grid, because it is the only one being connected to all other nodes.

Whereas this works for tahoe put, Tahoe does not use the helper for tahoe mkdir (it dies with NotEnoughServersError).

As a side effect, this topology beaks tahoe backup as well (sadly after uploading all the data…). Using the Web API of the helper directly is currently not an option because of #2401.
