    Couchbase Sync Gateway
    Covers Couchbase Sync Gateway’s compatibility with Couchbase Server and Couchbase Lite

    Sync Gateway and Couchbase Server

    Users of Couchbase Server 6.0 should ensure they have addressed the known issue (MB-41255) by upgrading to one of the recommended Couchbase Server versions (6.0.5, 6.5.2, or 6.6.1).

    The known issue can cause rebalance failures and/or failed replica writes of deleted or expired documents that use Xattrs.

    This impacts Sync Gateway deployments running with shared bucket access enabled, which use xattrs for metadata storag.
