Hi everyone.

 

I would to know one thing.

The example scenario is both grid master (HA) is down. then we promote grid master candidate to grid master via CLI.

Then grid master is back to online (replacing hardware or whatever) then how can we repromote the old grid master into servicing one or is there any case scenario for this?

Thanks.

When your previous gridmaster is back online it should join as a member with gridmaster candidate enabled and you can re-promote it to gridmaster again.

Hello There,

 

Just wanted to add something to the last reply to you :

 

During a Grid Master promotion, ensure that you do not designate a Grid member as a Grid Master Candidate or promote a Master Candidate. In addition, wait up to two hours since the last promotion to perform another Grid Master promotion. Otherwise, you might experience unnecessary member reboots. Whenever possible, separate any operations that require product restarts by at least an hour. As what harrys has mentioned, you may re-promote the old grid master once its back online keeping in mind the above.

 

Best regards,

Mohammed Alman.
