Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-2703) Configure via debconf when installing Debian package
Date Tue, 24 May 2011 22:11:48 GMT
Configure via debconf when installing Debian package

                 Key: CASSANDRA-2703
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Packaging
         Environment: Debian/Ubuntu-based systems
            Reporter: paul cannon
            Priority: Minor

It would be most excellent if the cassandra Debian package could get some of its configuration
via debconf on install. For example, "Do you want to start a new Cassandra cluster or join
an existing one", "Enter the address(es) of seed(s) in the cluster you want to join", "On
which interface(s) should cassandra listen for Thrift (RPC) connections?", etc.

Power users would preseed the answers to these questions in debconf before install, so that
installation could proceed without disturbance.

To implement, I imagine we'd ship a script to generate a cassandra.yaml from a template and
the debconf answers.

This would remove the need for the CASSANDRA-2356 extra step in the setup process, and also
make cassandra easier to administer and easier to try out.
