I'm trying to convert a standalone Plone instance to a ZEO cluster. I have the ZEO server and three clients on the same machine. I modified the buildout, cleared the buildout cache, and reran bin/buildout. Everything seemed to work. In fact, when I run bin/ everything looks like it's working, except then if I use bin/ I'll see that only client1 is running.

If I try running bin/zeo fg I get the following:

root@dev:/opt/Plone/zinstance# bin/zeo fg
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/opt/Plone/Python-2.7/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ZEO/", line 397, in <module>
  File "/opt/Plone/Python-2.7/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ZEO/", line 394, in main
  File "/opt/Plone/Python-2.7/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ZEO/", line 165, in main
AttributeError: StorageServer instance has no attribute 'close'

The zeo.log file shows the process repeatedly exiting with status 1 and restarting but doesn't give me anything more detailed.

First of all, what is the problem I'm having? Secondly, how can I fix it?

Well I gave in and reinstalled it (i.e., ./ zeo) and now it seems to work. – Casey May 31 '13 at 13:31

Run the script again to fix.
