6.3. Cluster Discovery Methods

When choosing a cluster discovery method for your cluster, pay attention to the following:

  • The recommended way of configuring auto-discovery for a Virtuozzo Storage cluster is to use DNS records. For more details on this discovery method, see Using DNS Records.

  • Zeroconf autodiscovery can be used for testing and evaluating the Virtuozzo Storage functionality. This discovery method is not recommended for use in production for security reasons. Malicious users can potentially perform DoS attacks on the Zeroconf service even if you use security certificates for authentication in your network.
