Create a Zone

Once you have started the command line interface and configured a store name, you can create at least one Zone. It is possible, and even desirable, to create more than one Zone. Multiple Zones are used to improve the availability of your store. These instructions describe the installation using a single Zone. For a complete walk-through of a store deployment with multiple Zones, see Configuring with Multiple Zones.

Note

Once you have added Storage Nodes to a Zone, you cannot remove the Zone from your store.

For more information on Primary and Secondary Replication Factors, see Configuring with Multiple Zones.

When you execute the plan deploy-zone command, the CLI returns the plan number. It also returns instructions on how to check the plan's status, or to wait for it to complete. For example:

kv-> plan deploy-zone -name "Boston" -rf 3 -wait
Executed plan 1, waiting for completion...
Plan 1 ended successfully
kv->

You can show the plans and their status by using the show plans command.

kv-> show plans
