Consul Auto-Join

Consul can be configured to auto-join via Atlas. Atlas will track the most recent members to join the infrastructure named by the configured-atlas flag and automatically join them on start. For servers, the LAN and WAN pool are both joined.

This enables quick discovery of peers for nodes in a datacenter. Atlas authenticates and verifies this join.

This can be enabled with the -atlas-join flag.

$ consul agent -atlas acmeinc/infrastructure -atlas-join
