Recovering nodes that fail to start normally

If a StorageGRID Webscale node does not rejoin the grid normally and does not show up as recoverable, it may be corrupted. You can force the node into recovery mode.

To force the node into recovery mode:

sudo storagegrid node force-recovery node-name
Tip: Before issuing this command, confirm that the node’s network configuration is correct; it may have failed to rejoin the grid due to incorrect network interface mappings or an incorrect grid network IP address or gateway.
Attention: After issuing the storagegrid node force-recovery node-name command, you must perform additional recovery steps for node-name.
