I am new here, and looking to setup some test deployment on VPS I have at my provider (non GCP, Azure, Amazon).
Some things I am missing from the docs (I guess):
- I will use 3 nodes; I will install them one by one; but in Manual Deployment docs I see I have to know all the IP addresses in advance that I will use. Is this correct?
- Further on point above; so what if I later extend the nodes; what do I have to do to add the nodes - do I need to re-install the first 3 nodes?
- So I will have 3 nodes, 3 public IP addresses; I guess I have to setup a LoadBalancer to balance the requests over the 3 nodes; no hint in the documentation about this; also the GCP script does not contain any load balancing hints; otherwise how would I connect to the cluster through my DEV code (choose one IP address does seem to be against the distributed idea of failing nodes…)
- What about updates? What if YB releases a new version; how does this work? I stop 1 node, update it to a new version, bring it back up, and then move to the next node?
Thanks for some clarifications on the above.
