Configuring the recovery primary Admin Node

The recovery primary Admin Node must be configured as a replacement for the failed node, so that it can resume its role within the StorageGRID Webscale system.

Before you begin

Steps

  1. Open your web browser and navigate to https://primary_admin_node_ip.
  2. Click Recover a failed Primary Admin Node.
  3. Upload the most recent backup of the Recovery Package:
    1. Click Browse.
    2. Locate the most recent Recovery Package file for your StorageGRID Webscale system and click Open.
  4. Enter the provisioning passphrase.
  5. Click Start Recovery.
    The recovery process begins. The Grid Management Interface might become unavailable for a few minutes as the required services start. When the recovery is complete, the login page is displayed.
  6. Determine if you need to install a hotfix installation. Check if the installed software version matches the version on the other grid nodes. Go to the Grid > primary Admin Node > SSM > Services > Overview > Main page, and check the Version.
  7. If required, manually install the appropriate hotfix on the primary Admin Node. See the hotfix release notes for install instructions.
    Note: Hotfixes must be applied manually to the primary Admin Node so they can automatically update on the grid.
