All grid node types: Replacing a VMware node

When you recover a failed grid node of any type that was hosted on VMware, you must use VMware vSphere to first remove the failed node and then deploy a recovery node. This procedure is one step of the grid node recovery process.

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 one step in the process of recovering non-appliance Storage Nodes, primary or non-primary Admin Nodes, Gateway Nodes, or Archive Nodes. The steps are identical regardless of the type of grid node you are recovering.
