Previously the cluster name could be used in the
path.data setting with a
warning. This is now no longer allowed. For instance, in the previous version
this was valid:
# Assuming path.data is /tmp/mydata # No longer supported: $ tree /tmp/mydata /tmp/mydata ├── <cluster_name> │ └── nodes │ └── 0 │ └── <etc> # Should be changed to: $ tree /tmp/mydata /tmp/mydata ├── nodes │ └── 0 │ └── <etc>
