zookeeper installation after cluster setup

Explorer

Is it possible to install zookeeper after few days of cluster setup? I mean due to budget constraints we could fetch few servers at a later stage.

@Mahen Jay can you please elaborate more on the usecase here?

  • Do you already have 3 Zookeeper nodes and looking to add more on later stage?
    • If this is the case, then yes you can always add more ZK after the cluster is created.
  • Or are you saying to just skip zookeeper nodes for now?
    • If this is the case then I do not think it would be possible as it is a depended service.
    • You can always move the ZK nodes at a later stage to other machines.
  • You need to have ZK nodes at the time of cluster creation.

Please let me know if the use case is different.

I understood now that all basic components have to be deployed on available resources and later they should be moved to new nodes as and when they are added into cluster
