Yes, if you search "back" (older entries) in the server log you will be
able to see who the leader is, it will say something like "LEADING" or
"FOLLOWING", but this may change over time (which is why you need to
search "back" as I mention) if leadership within the ZK cluster changes
(say due to networking issue). This is why I mention the logs so highly
- it really will give us much additional insight into the issue.
here's an example of a 5 server ensemble:
ph...@valhalla:~/dev/workspace/zkconf/test5[master]$ egrep LEAD local*/*.log
localhost:2184/zoo.log:2010-03-16 12:50:13,711 - INFO
[QuorumPeer:/0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:2184:quorump...@632] - LEADING
ph...@valhalla:~/dev/workspace/zkconf/test5[master]$ egrep FOLLOW
localhost:2181/zoo.log:2010-03-16 12:50:13,649 - INFO
[QuorumPeer:/0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:2181:quorump...@620] - FOLLOWING
localhost:2182/zoo.log:2010-03-16 12:50:13,933 - INFO
[QuorumPeer:/0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:2182:quorump...@620] - FOLLOWING
localhost:2183/zoo.log:2010-03-16 12:50:13,901 - INFO
[QuorumPeer:/0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:2183:quorump...@620] - FOLLOWING
localhost:2185/zoo.log:2010-03-16 12:50:13,661 - INFO
[QuorumPeer:/0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:2185:quorump...@620] - FOLLOWING
Additionally if you use the "stat" 4letter word you will see the current
status of the server, leader or follower. (JMX as well)

We'll probably need the ZK server/client logs to hunt this down. Can you
tell if the MOVED happens in some particular scenario, say you are connected
to a follower and move to a leader, or perhaps you are connected to server
A, get disconnected and reconnected to server A? .... is there some pattern
that could help us understand what's causing this?
When I get to office tomorrow I will try to investigate logs and maybe
i will be able to find out what the error scenario is.
But I am not sure if I will be able to find out what was the role of
each node when problem occurred?
Does zookeeper server log when node state changes between follower and
leader. Or can I make it log it?
