One thing missing from the list is that you need to have myid files on
each server that correspond to the servers id (specified in the conf file).
You'd have a config on each system that looks something like:
"You attribute the server id to each machine by creating a file named
myid, one for each server, which resides in that server's data
directory, as specified by the configuration file parameter dataDir. The
myid file consists of a single line containing only the text of that
machine's id. So myid of server 1 would contain the text "1" and nothing
else. The id must be unique within the ensemble and should have a value
between 1 and 255."
My ZK ensemble configuration generator may be a help to you:
(if any thing as an example of what the configuration/structure should
generally look like, also an easy way to test locally before trying to
deploy to remote systems)

Nearly! 1+2 are correct, but you also need to start ZooKeeper on all three
instances with bin/zkServer.sh start.

Now that I have your attention..next question... :)
Now I would like to start a Zookeeper Quorum on 3 EC Instances. Read the
doc regarding... "Running Replicated ZooKeeper". It says "all servers in
the quorum should have the same configuration file".. Does this mean... I
1) Download & Install ZooKeeper on all 3 instances (at the same location.)
2) Save the same zoo.cfg in /conf for all 3 instances.
3) On one instance (Master?), run...
Would that start ZooKeeper on all 3 instances? Thanks for the help.

Switched to 3.2.1. Much better. Got a command prompt. Thank you both.

The 3.2.1 command line is a lot nicer (has an actual prompt, tab
auto-completion, shows your connection status etc) - if you can upgrade
3.2.1 which is a good deal more modern, I would recommend it. If I
correctly, there was no prompt in 3.1.1...

Without -server made some progress, but don't see a command prompt.
Shouldn't I see one?
This is what I see:

Should I just use 3.2.1 version?

Can you try this?
The -server command was added later as far as I remember.

I am trying to start ZooKeeper on an EC2 instance. Here's what I
1) Downloaded & Unpacked ZooKeeper 3.1.1 on EC2 instance.
2) cp /conf/zoo_sample.cfg /conf/zoo.cfg
3) Changed the dataDir path to point to my EBS volume.
4) In one command window, ran /bin/zkServer.sh start
(The last message I see is... "Snapshotting: 0)
5) Opened another command window, and ran jps
(This shows a new process called, QuorumPeerMain. That's the only
6) As per documentation, tried
bin/zkCli.sh -server 127.0.0.1:2181
(This gives me IOException: USAGE)
7) So I ran:
bin/zkCli.sh -server 127.0.0.1:2181 ls
Got UnknownHostException: -server
8) So I tried various ways of specifying IP address in EC2, such
None of them worked. Keep getting UnknownHostException.
What am I doing wrong. Please help. Thanks.
