Hey guys,

 For some reason when I go to purge the varnish cache on my second varnish
node, I get this error:

[root at varnish2:~] #varnishadm ban "req.url ~ /"
Cannot open /var/lib/varnish/varnish2/_.vsm: No such file or directory
Could not open shared memory

Can someone please explain to me what this error means and how to correct


GPG me!!
