I recently tested out the Datastax Enterprise AMI, and set up a 2-node cluster with Solr enabled on both nodes.
Unfortunately, the installation failed with this message:
[INFO] Using instance type: m1.large
[ERROR] Clusters within a VPC are not supported. Aborting installation.
Please verify your settings:
--clustername Test --totalnodes 2 --version enterprise --username **** --password **** --searchnodes 2 --opscenter yes
[ERROR] Exception seen in ds1_launcher.py:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/ubuntu/datastax_ami/ds1_launcher.py", line 31, in initial_configurations
File "/home/ubuntu/datastax_ami/ds2_configure.py", line 964, in run
File "/home/ubuntu/datastax_ami/ds2_configure.py", line 55, in exit_path
I set up the nodes in a standard EC2 environment, not a VPC.
Now, I'm trying to shut the nodes down, and I am unable to terminate the nodes completely -- the cluster keeps re-appearing, and adding the same nodes, with the same problem. When I log into the server, I can't shut down DSE because DSE isn't running, but the nodes are still auto-populating.
I've been struggling with this for quite some time; please help me stop these zombie instances.
Thanks in advance.
