Node states

A node can be in one of several states depending on the level of configuration.

  • Available: The node has no associated cluster name and is not yet part of a cluster.
  • Pending: The node is configured and can be added to a designated cluster.

    Authentication is not required to access the node.

  • Pending Active: The system is in the process of installing compatible Element software on the node. When complete, the node will move to the Active state.
  • Active: The node is participating in a cluster.

    Authentication is required to modify the node.

In each of these states, some fields are read only.
