Zookeeper error: Cannot open channel to X at election address

Tags: , ,



I have installed zookeeper in 3 different aws servers. The following is the configuration in all the servers

tickTime=2000
initLimit=10
syncLimit=5
dataDir=/var/zookeeper
clientPort=2181
server.1=x.x.x.x:2888:3888
server.2=x.x.x.x:2888:3888
server.3=x.x.x.x:2888:3888

All the three instance have a myid file at var/zookeeper with appropriate id in it. All the three servers have all ports open from the aws console. But when I run the zookeeper server, I get the following error in all the instances.

Answer

How have defined the ip of the local server in each node? If you have given the public ip, then the listener would have failed to connect to the port. You must specify 0.0.0.0 for the current node

server.1=0.0.0.0:2888:3888
server.2=192.168.10.10:2888:3888
server.3=192.168.2.1:2888:3888

This change must be performed at the other nodes too.
