Replacing the Gateway Node

You can replace a failed Gateway Node with a Gateway Node running on the same physical or virtual hardware, or you can replace a Gateway Node running on VMware or a Linux host with a Gateway Node hosted on a services appliance.

About this task

The node replacement procedure you must follow depends on which platform will be used by the replacement node. After you complete the node replacement procedure (which is suitable for all node types), that procedure will direct you to the next step for Gateway Node recovery.
Linux: The Linux node replacement procedure will help you determine if grid node recovery is complete after you complete that procedure, and if not, which steps you need to take next.
Replacement platform Procedure
VMware Replacing a VMware node
Linux Replacing a Linux node
SG1000 services appliance Replacing a services appliance
OpenStack NetApp-provided virtual machine disk files and scripts for OpenStack are no longer supported for recovery operations. If you need to recover a node running in an OpenStack deployment, download the files for your Linux operating system. Then, follow the procedure for replacing a Linux node.
