Selecting Start Recovery to configure the API Gateway Node

You must select Start Recovery in the Grid Management Interface to configure the API Gateway Node so that the grid recognizes it as a replacement for the failed node.

Before you begin

Steps

  1. From the Grid Management Interface, select Maintenance > Recovery.
  2. Select the grid node you want to recover in the Pending Nodes list.
    Nodes appear in the list after they fail, but are not selectable unless they have been reinstalled and are ready for recovery.
  3. Enter the Provisioning Passphrase.
  4. Click Start Recovery.

  5. Monitor the progress of the recovery in the Recovering Grid Node table.
    Note: At any point during the recovery, you can click Reset to start a new recovery.
    Linux: If you reset the recovery, you must also manually restart the node by running the command storagegrid node force-recovery <node-name> on the Linux host.
    VMware/OpenStack: If you reset the recovery, you must manually delete the deployed virtual grid node. To restart the recovery, re-deploy the virtual grid node using the steps in the section titled "Deploying the recovery grid node."
