Moved from GitHub dgraph/3239
Posted by codexnull:
When dgraph increment is without credentials against a server that requires them, the output is a repeating
Query error: rpc error: code = Unavailable desc = all SubConns are in TransientFailure, latest connection error: connection closed. Retrying...
which is not indicative of the actual problem.
Also, when it is run WITH credentials against a server that DOES NOT require them, the program succeeds without any notification, which can lead to the false impression that it is using a secure connection.
