Creating the Domain and Adding Hosts

You create a NuoDB domain when you provision the first NuoDB host. You grow the domain by provisioning or adding additional hosts. Adding hosts to a domain is simplified by the role of the broker.

You perform the following steps on each host you add to the domain:

  1. Install NuoDB software without automatically starting NuoDB services.
  2. Edit the default.properties file with settings that enable the host to securely peer into the domain.
  3. Start the broker, which securely and safely peers into the domain by means of another broker.

For additional information about the tasks you need to perform, see About Domains for conceptual information about the domain.

Provisioning and deprovisioning hosts is done by peering a broker into the domain. NuoDB updates the durable domain configuration to reflect the newly added peer.
