U4-8425 - Slave sites require write permissions in flexible load balanced scenario

Created by Kurt Hamilton 09 May 2016, 16:02:13 Updated by Kurt Hamilton 09 May 2016, 16:02:13

I have 1 master and 2 slave sites set up based on the method described here: https://our.umbraco.org/Documentation/Getting-Started/Setup/Server-Setup/Load-Balancing/flexible-advanced

I am using Umbraco 7.4.3 and SQL Server.

It was recently discovered that unpublishing a node on master wasn't being replicated on the slave sites. The slave sites were set up with db_datareader access. After running a trace during an unpublish, I found the slave sites required delete permission on cmsContentXml. The unpublish was successfully performed after granting permission.

Am I right in thinking that slave sites shouldn't require any write permissions to the database if using the technique in the referenced article? If so, I would consider this a bug. (I do appreciate the caveat at the start of the article!).
