Initialize the configuration to bootstrap a cluster.

--ips flag specifies seed servers (ips, ip:ports, or hostnames) that this
broker will use to form a cluster.
redpanda expects your machine to have one private IP address, and
redpanda will listen on it. If your machine has multiple private IP addresses,

--self flag to specify which ip
