RE: Peer that can't become leader
Are you asking about observers? Observers don't vote and are not elected.

Subject: Peer that can't become leader

Hi all,

Camille Fournier in her blog post on a global service discovery
infrastructure using ZK [1] describes a setup in which, by design, a
distinguished peer P never becomes leader.

Is there any way of accomplishing this setup with ZK config files? Or
would one have to watch the ensemble and restart P if ever P becomes
leader?

Thanks,
