I have verified that syncrepl with type=refreshAndPersist works with

However neither the 2.3.19-x (which is the current version on my platform

I have traversed the net and tried numerous configuration variations, but
not found anything that changes the behavior. I always end up having to
restart the slave to get the updates over. Needless to say that I have
tried on different hardware (all x86-based) and all on complete fresh
installations of the base OS.

When loading the consumer/replica/slave, the apparently connects to the

There seems to be many people who have this working, but I have not yet
been able to find a configuration example that works.

Am I missing something or is refreshAndPersist broken ?

Any hints would be most appreciated.

Works for me, is all I can say. :/

Have you run the test suite?


specifically tests refresh & persist.

Also, have you turned up debugging on the master to see what happens when the slave connects?
