>>Please use a port for electionPort different from the one you're using in the
I think I am getting confused with the range of port numbers that must be
defined. I had assumed there were only 2 types - clientPort and electionPort
representing the client-server comms and the server-server comms respectively
as shown in the overview diagram below:
It sounds like there may be another type of port to deal with - is this right?
I previously added a comment about electionPorts to the Wiki documentation here
( http://zookeeper.wiki.sourceforge.net/ZooKeeperGettingStarted ) to clarify my
understanding of the config settings.
While this interpretation works OK in sourceforge 2.2.1 I am now confused as to
the arrangement in Apache 3.0. I spent most of yesterday debugging and trying
different configuration files. Sourceforge version worked fine but when I
flipped the jars to the Apache version (keeping the same zoo config files) it
just wouldn't work -either running on a single machine or multiples. Sometimes
this was because the Apache version was using the wrong port to try talk to
another machine (when I configured each server with different election port
settings) and sometimes a single server would get a BindException trying to
open the same ServerSocket twice.
I suspect this may be down to my misunderstanding of the ports now used and a
change since the sourceforge version. Can you cast any more light on this?
I'd also be keen to get some advice on whether to go with sourceforge 2.2.1 or
Apache 3.x for an upcoming deployment to a live system. I imagine ZK 3 may be a
bit of a moving target but is more likely to get bug-fixed than zk 2.2.1?
