  • The configuration options listen, raftHeartbeatPort, and raftReplicaPort cannot be modified after the program is first configured and started.
  • The relevant configuration information is recorded in the constcfg file under the metadataDir directory. If you need to force modification, you need to manually delete the file.
  • The above three configuration options are related to the registration information of the MetaNode in the Master. If modified, the Master will not be able to locate the MetaNode information before the modification.
