Is there a way to script clustering a bunch of CQ5 servers without having to restart the instances a couple of time?


Level 7


In CRX Clustering, the instructions for setting up a cluster are outlined as:

  • Copy the files crx-quickstart-*.jar and and to the desired directory.
  • Start the instance: java -Xmx512m -jar *.jar
  • Verify that the instance is up and running, then stop the instance.
  • In the file crx-quickstart/, add the IP address of the slave instance you are adding below (if that slave is on a different machine, otherwise this step is not needed).
  • Stop the instance.
  • If a shared data store is to be be used: 
    • Change crx-quickstart/repository/repository.xml, as described in Shared Data Store and Data Store, above.
    • Assuming you have configured <shared>/datastore/ as the shared location, copy the contents of the crx-quickstart/repository/repository/datastore to the directory <shared>/datastore.
  • Start the instance, and verify that it still works.

Is there a way to avoid this stop/start sequence, mainly to save some time when bootstrapping new instances on EC2?

Thanks in advance.
