Donor shards may create config.cache.chunks for temporary resharding collection after calculating their minFetchTimestamp

      Problem Description

      Recipient shards expect to read from the donor shard's existing sharded collection and the config.cache.chunks collection of the temporary resharding collection using {atClusterTime: <fetchTimestamp>}. Refreshing the temporary resharding collection on the donor shards causes them to create the config.cache.chunks.<database>.system.resharding.<existingUUID> collection. If this config.cache.chunks collection is created after the minFetchTimestamp, then the {atClusterTime: <fetchTimestamp>} read on it would fail with a SnapshotUnavailable error response. (Or a NamespaceNotFound error response if the donor shards weren't also recipient shards.)

      Donor shards must instead create the config.cache.chunks for temporary resharding collection before calculating their minFetchTimestamp.


      • Trigger a catalog cache refresh for the temporary resharding collection, on the DonorStateMachine, before calculating the fetchTimestamp.
      • Remove the refresh that's marked under this ticket's number as a TODO on the coordinator's state machine.
