Re: SG node1 reinstalled from scratch

The ASCII file is just the beginning. Depending on the version of SG you are running, you may have package config scripts, application and database scripts, and perhaps monitor scripts. Once you get the ASCII file, you'll have to modify it to match the reinstalled node (LAN devices, shared volume groups and the cluster quorum lock disk). You need good records about how the pacakges and the cluster were designed to avoid errors during cmapplyconf. The running cluster must be stopped in order to apply the new config.

 

This is why Ignite backup is not optional -- it is mandatory for all service guard nodes. And not once a year...weekly or at least monthly.
