Starting with too little Servers

Asked by Philip on 2013-03-02

Hi,

I would like to create a new cluster which the recommended 3 times replication. However at the moment I just have two servers available. Is it possible to start the cluster with these two servers and add a third at a later point?

Best Regards
Philip

Update: Each Server has 24 disks, so there is at least some redundancy at the server level.

Yep, that'll work just fine.

See http://docs.openstack.org/developer/swift/overview_ring.html#building-the-ring paragraph 2 for more details.

Can you help with this problem?
