2 node -> 3 node -> 4 node

Hello,

 

We are adding two more nodes to our existing 2 node cluster.  We have currently added the 3rd node to the cluster and the cmc is saying that best practice is to have 3 regular managers running.  We currently have 2 regular managers running and the default virtual manager is off.  Do I just delete the virtual manager and start the regular manager on the newly added 3rd node?

 

Will the fourth node require a manager runnig as well?

 

This is all in the same cluster, everything is running the same vesion 9.5.00.1215.0

 

Thanks,

Dan.

Yes, you should simply stop virtual manager and start regular one on 3rd node. After you add 4th node, no more managers will be needed - for 4 node management group best practice is to run 3 managers.
