Failing over a node

Failing over a node

Failover is performed on a specific node via Server Nodes > Failover

To perform a failover:

  1. Navigate to Server Nodes .
  2. For the server node, select Fail Over .
  3. Select Graceful Failover to gracefully failover. Alternatively, select Hard Fail Over to force the failover or cancel.
  4. Click Fail Over .
    While the node is being failed over, the failover process can be stopped by clicking on Stop Failover .
    When failover occurs on a specific node, that node is marked as Failed Over: Pending Removal
  5. To view the status of the failover operation, click Pending Rebalance .
    Note: If you perform the rebalance operation at this point (before selecting a recovery option), the server node is removed from the cluster. Once the node is removed from the cluster, that same node can be added to the cluster, however, it is treated the same as a new server node. That means that all data on the server node is removed.
