Multiple nodes on a single host/machine with multiple IP addresses
Attempting to install/configure multiple membase nodes on a single physical host/machine with multiple IP addresses.
I appreciate, if anyone could share the installation steps or I could attempt if you could direct me, even if you thought about it but haven't attempted yourself.
Two of our hosts has ample memory; and would like to run multiple nodes and enable the replication and fail over feature.
Does anyone know why 3 nodes are required for the fail over?
With two nodes in place I could live with 1 replica copy in a best scenario and with zero replicas when the second node, whose replica's is available on the first node, goes down (I am okay with warning but still I would like the fail over to the first node be effective)
I could add the second node and re-balance the keys manually later when the seconds node comes back.
