Promotes a node to master aggregator. This command must be run from the same host that the node is on.

If --memsql-id is not specified, memsqlctl will check if there is only one “untyped” node on the local machine. and if so, choose that node to be bootstrapped.

This command is interactive unless you use either the --yes or --json flags to override interactive behavior.

The memsqlctl bootstrap-aggregator command is equivalent to the memsql-admin bootstrap-aggregator command.


The following is the standard output for the bootstrap-aggregator command.

$ sudo memsqlctl bootstrap-aggregator --host "" --license <license>
memsqlctl will perform the following actions on the local node on port 3306:
