Cluster-init ERROR too many values to unpack


Hi there,

I’m trying to configure couchbase-server using the couchbase-cli. I am running the cluster-init command like so:

/opt/couchbase/bin/couchbase-cli cluster-init -c localhost:8091 \
   --cluster-username=Administrator \
   --cluster-password=password \
   --cluster-ramsize=256 \

iv’e also tried

/opt/couchbase/bin/couchbase-cli cluster-init -c \
   --cluster-init-username=Administrator \
   --cluster-init-password=password \
   --cluster-init-port=8091 \

but all I get in response is

ERROR: command: cluster-init: localhost:8091, too many values to unpack

I’ve googled the error and found nothing of any help. Any ideas?


Having the exact same error, with the Couchbase Community Edition 4.0 on CentOS 7.1

I found that you must specific the --service=data,index,query option. Looks like there is not a default value for this or the error that the option is missing is not checked properly.
