Subject Dynamic construction of cluster
Date Fri, 22 May 2015 11:40:40 GMT
Hi All,

I'd like to programatically setup zookeeper cluster. My goal is to use
machines with CoreOS and dynamically deploy three nodes in form of docker
containers and setup them to one zoo cluster.

Except common setup in manual (/zookeeperReconfig.html) which shows how to
add another nodes to existing three nodes cluster, I found a conversation
which say how to do that from the beginning when I have no running nodes in
existing cluster. Unfortunately, this set of steps does not work for me.
I'm talking about

Here is a list of steps I did:

1. Run first node with standaloneEnabled=false and the only entry
in zoo.cfg.dynamic.

2. Run second node with following dynamic cfg:

Note that there is no difference in resulting behavior when I'd change
"observer" to "participant" for second node.

3. Now I have two running instances. I can use ./zkCli.sh to log into first
node. When I try to add second node using following command:

reconfig -add server.2=localhost:2382:2282:participant;

... it fails with:

> KeeperErrorCode = NewConfigNoQuorum for

However, after some research I found solution. But it's tricky and I don't
think that it's the only correct solution.

What is working for me? I can do step #3 on first node again but now with
"observer". This command causes that even first node knows about second
node. When I type 'config' to console in zkCli, it seems that it's working.
Next step is to log into second node using zkCli and than exec commands:

reconfig -remove 2 <- next step is not working w/o this removal
reconfig -add server.2=localhost:2382:2282:participant;

Well, now I have working cluster for two nodes. Finally, it's interesting
that now I can add third node using regular scenario I've mentioned in
first paragraph.

Do someone have some idea what I'm doing wrong?
