XDR

To deploy a cluster as a cross-datacenter replication (XDR) source, configure dc-security-config-file and dc-node-address-port in the aerospikeConfig.xdr.datacenter section of the CR file. After updating these configurations in the CR file, apply the CR file to deploy the cluster.

For more information, see the documentation on cross-datacenter replication (XDR).

This and other example CRs are stored in the main Aerospike Kubernetes Operator repository.

Remote DC Credentials

If the destination cluster has security enabled then aerospike-secret created in this section should also have a security_credentials_DC1.txt file for the destination DC.

$ cat security_credentials_DC1.txt
credentials
{
username xdr_user
password xdr_pass
}
