Re: Does Raft orderer work across multiple Kubernetes clusters?

The idea of anchor peer is providing information about other peers in the same organization. There is no need for a peer to be completely public but it should be at least accessible by other peers somehow. VPN, white listing or whatever. If only anchor peer is accessible by outer world/other peers, what is the point of providing information about some peers which are not accessible? ;)

Regarding your question, each Raft orderer node should be access to each other. port is by default 7050 and the host/port is actually defined in configtx.yaml and encoded in the genesis block.

If I have 2 orgs contributing orderer nodes using etcd raft consensus, and each org runs its nodes in its own Kubernetes cluster.  How can I make Raft work across these 2 orgs? I guess that every orderer node will have to make some ports open to outside of its K8s cluster via e.g., ELB, but I am not sure which port and whether all orderer nodes must be open to public.  Is there a concept like the anchor peer, where each org need to make only the anchor peer open to external world?

Or, should I simply make all orderer nodes live in the same Kubernetes cluster as a best practice?  Thanks.
