Troubleshoot replication jobs

This page shows you how to resolve issues related to Cloud Data Fusion replication jobs.

Exception: Unable to create staging bucket

When the bucket naming convention is violated, the replication job might fail with the following error in the pipeline log:

Caused by: Unable to create staging bucket

You can optionally provide the staging bucket name. If not provided, the replication job generates one by appending a suffix to the job name. In some cases, you can use a shorter job name to resolve this issue. For more information, see Bucket names.

MySQL CONVERT_TO_NULL value not in set

If you are using an earlier version of MySQL Connector/J, such as version 5, the replication job fails with the following error:

The connection property 'zeroDateTimeBehavior' only accepts values of the form:
'exception', 'round' or 'convertToNull'. The value 'CONVERT_TO_NULL' is not in
this set.

The accepted values for zeroDateTimeBehavior are incompatible between different versions of MySQL Connector/J.

To resolve this issue, use MySQL Connector/J version 8 or later.

Replication and SQL Server Always On databases

A Microsoft SQL Server source can capture changes from an Always On read-only replica. For this setup, you must pass the runtime argument source.connector.database.applicationIntent=ReadOnly to the replication job. Without this runtime argument, the job fails with the following error:

Producer failure
Failed to update database "DATABASE_NAME" because the database is read-only.

To resolve this issue, set source.connector.database.applicationIntent=ReadOnly as a runtime argument. This internally sets snapshot.isolation.mode to snapshot.

Replication error on Dataproc static cluster

When you run a replication job, SSL connection from Dataproc cluster nodes might fail with a java.lang.NullPointerException or Connection reset error:

ERROR [SparkRunnerphase-1:i.c.c.i.a.r.ProgramControllerServiceAdapter@93] -
Spark program 'phase-1' failed with error: The driver could not establish a
secure connection to SQL Server by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption.
Error: "Connection reset ClientConnectionId:ID"

This error occurs due to the Conscrypt SSL provider configured for use in the JDK version installed on Dataproc.

To resolve this issue, use the default SSL provider for Java JDK by disabling the Conscrypt SSL provider. To disable the Conscrypt SSL provider, set the following cluster property when starting the Dataproc cluster:

--properties dataproc:dataproc.conscrypt.provider.enable=false

Replication for SQL Server doesn't replicate all columns for changed tables

When you replicate data from a table in SQL Server, if your Replication source table has a newly added column, it isn't automatically added to the Change Data Capture (CDC) table. You must manually add it to the underlying CDC table.

To resolve this issue, follow these steps:

  1. Disable the CDC instance:

    EXEC sp_cdc_disable_table
    @source_schema = N'dbo',
    @source_name = N'myTable',
    @capture_instance = 'dbo_myTable'
  2. Enable the CDC instance again:

    EXEC sp_cdc_enable_table
    @source_schema = N'dbo',
    @source_name = N'myTable',
    @role_name = NULL,
    @capture_instance = 'dbo_myTable'
  3. Create a new replication job.

For more information, see Handling changes to source tables.

Roles and permissions errors

The following issues occur with access control.

Cloud Data Fusion service account permission issue

When running a replication job using Oracle Database, retrieving a table list might fail with the following error:

Error io.grpc.StatusRuntimeException: PERMISSION_DENIED: Permission
'datastream.streams.get' denied on 'projects/PROJECT_NAME/locations/REGION/streams/STREAM_NAME'

When you run a replication job with an Oracle Database, Cloud Data Fusion uses the Datastream service in the backend. To get the permissions that you need to use the Datastream service, ask your administrator to grant you the Datastream Admin (roles/datastream.admin) IAM role on the Cloud Data Fusion service account.

Permission not granted to view Change Data Capture

When replicating data from SQL Server, you might see the following error in the pipeline log:

No whitelisted table has enabled CDC, whitelisted table list does not contain any
table with CDC enabled or no table match the white/blacklist filter(s)

This issue occurs if the user provided in the source connection properties doesn't have permissions to view the Change Data Capture (CDC) for the replicated table. This is controlled by the role_name parameter when enabling CDC on the table, using sys.sp_cdc_enable_table.

For more information about granting required permissions to view CDC, see Enable CDC on table and sys.sp_cdc_enable_table.

User Defined Type permission issue

If the database user used by the replication job doesn't have permissions on the User Defined Type (UDT), you might see the following error in the pipeline log:

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: The primary key cannot reference a non-existent
column'oid' in table TABLE_NAME

In this error message, the oid column might be a UDT.

To resolve this issue, grant access to the user by running the following command in the database:


SQL Server Agent isn't running

If the SQL Server Agent isn't running, you might see the following error in the pipeline log:

No maximum LSN recorded in the database; please ensure that the SQL Server Agent
is running [io.debezium.connector.sqlserver.SqlServerStreamingChangeEventSource]

To resolve this issue, start the SQL Server Agent. For more information, refer to the following documentation depending on the Operating System you are using:

SQL Server Replication pipeline version isn't the latest

If the SQL Server Replication pipeline version isn't the latest, the following error appears in the pipeline log:

Method io/cdap/delta/sqlserver/SqlServerDeltaSource.configure(Lio/cdap/delta/api/SourceConfigurer;) is abstract

This error occurs if an earlier version of the source plugin is working with a relatively new version of the delta app. In such cases, the new interface defined by the new version of delta app isn't implemented.

To resolve this issue, follow these steps:

  1. Retrieve information about the replication job by submitting an HTTP GET request:


    For more information, see View replication job details.

  2. Check the versions of the plugin and the delta app used by the replication job.

  3. Retrieve the list of available artifacts by submitting an HTTP GET request:

    GET /v3/namespaces/NAMESPACE_ID/artifacts

    For more information, see List Available Artifacts.

Static Dataproc cluster with insufficient authentication scope

If you are using a static Dataproc cluster that was created with insufficient authentication scope, you might see the following error in the pipeline log:

ERROR [worker-DeltaWorker-0:i.c.c.i.a.r.ProgramControllerServiceAdapter@92] - Worker
Program 'DeltaWorker' failed.
Caused by: io.grpc.StatusRuntimeException: PERMISSION_DENIED: Request had
insufficient authentication scopes.

To resolve this issue, create a new static Dataproc cluster and enable the cloud-platform scope for this cluster in the same project.
