hi jun! you are doing everything correctly. did you read the "Getting Started Guide"?
you can telnet to the client port and issue four letter commands (see the "Administrator's Guilde" to see what is going on. in particular "stat" will give you the information you want. ben ________________________________________ From: Jun Rao [jun...@almaden.ibm.com] Sent: Monday, April 13, 2009 1:30 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: starting replicated ZK server >From the ZK web site, it's not clear how to set up a multi-node ZK service. It seems that one has to add the server entries in the conf file and create myid files on each node. Then, how should I start the ZK nodes? I tried issuing "zkServer start" from each node and that didn't seem to work. Is that the right way to start the service? Also, once the service is up, is there a way to check the list of nodes used by ZK and which node is the leader?
