All grid node types: Replacing an OpenStack node

When you recover a failed grid node that was hosted on OpenStack, you must first use OpenStack to deploy a recovery node, and then associate the correct IP address with the node. This procedure is one step of the grid node recovery process for all types of grid node.

Before you begin

You must have determined that the virtual machine cannot be restored, and must be replaced.

About this task

This procedure is only performed as a step in the process of recovering non-appliance Storage Nodes, primary or non-primary Admin Nodes, API Gateway Nodes, or Archive Nodes. The steps are identical regardless of the type of grid node you are recovering.
