I am new to elastic search and I was curious whether the deployment order matters in an elastic search cluster. I was thinking of using unicast in production. I was thinking of the following configuration:
3 dedicated master nodes, 2 dedicated data nodes and possibly a few client nodes. In the unicast mode, each of these nodes would have a different configuration file elasticsearch.yml.However if I put all three master nodes in the list of nodes.
Is there an order I should launch the elastic search boxes?
Do all the master nodes need to be launched before any other boxes?
Does the discovery.zen.ping.unicast.hosts: list need to change as more masters/nodes are added or can it be set up front?
