Subject Re: Migrate Cluster

assuming you're using 3.4 release and doing reboots to add/remove servers,
option 2 doesn't seem safe. For example,
if you have servers A, B, C and you're adding D and E, note that its
possible that C isn't fully up to date since A and B can make progress
without C's acks (2 out of 3). When you reboot all servers its possible
that C forms a quorum with D and E (3 out of 5) and is elected leader.
Then, anything more recent A and B had will be lost.

If I'm not mistaken option 1 shouldn't have this problem since any quorum
after each step always intersects any quorum before the step.

If you're using 3.5 release you should be able to do the whole migration in
a single reconfiguration step.
