I'm working on a chef cookbook for setting up both opscenter and the agent on our cassandra nodes.
Our build/deploy cycle is kinda atypical (where these things run are detached from our chef server), so hang in there.
I'm installing the opscenter-agents from the deb that comes in the download. So the order I have is to install the opscenter server then on a different instance, the cassandra node and the agent.
I _thought_ when you pass in the server ip to the agent startup, when you log into the opscenter server the first time, the ring would be there to greet you, but alas - I'm failing at getting this to work :-(
What happens every time is the server asks if I'd like to create a ring or monitor an existing one. At which point, I put in the ip address of ONE of the cassandra nodes that has the agent installed on it and poof - it all works.
Am I misunderstanding how this all works or do I have borked configuration somewhere?
