Subject Re: Dynamic addition of server to a running cluster
Date Wed, 06 Jul 2011 00:51:00 GMT
Hi Paul,
 You are right. There isnt anyway to add a ZK server dynamically now.
Alex from Y! Research is working on it.

Am not sure what you mean by update /config/zoo.cfg? The current ZK
servers DO NOT read the configs from any znode. So what you mentioned
would not work.

Hope that helps.
