Subject Re: Dynamic reconfiguration: New participant server opens wrong ports
Date Thu, 19 Jun 2014 12:02:34 GMT

I am not sure to understand the lines server.1=localhost:2801:3801;2181
does it mean server.1=localhost:2801:3801 and clientPort set to 2181?

I assume  yes.
in that case, your behavior looks normal

server.x=[hostname]:nnnnn[:nnnnn], etc

(No Java system property)

servers making up the ZooKeeper ensemble. When the server starts up, it
determines which server it is by looking for the file myid in the data
directory. That file contains the server number, in ASCII, and it should
match *x* in *server.x* in the left hand side of this setting.

The list of servers that make up ZooKeeper servers that is used by the
clients must match the list of ZooKeeper servers that each ZooKeeper server

There are two port numbers *nnnnn*. The first followers use to connect to
the leader, and the second is for leader election. The leader election port
is only necessary if electionAlg is 1, 2, or 3 (default). If electionAlg is
0, then the second port is not necessary. If you want to test multiple
servers on a single machine, then different ports can be used for each

so regarding your config, you have just change to port for client
connection not for "membership/leader connection". and it looks that is why
the server.3 joins the cluster but no longer accept tcp request on 2183 but
on 2184.
