Replacing the primary Admin Node

To recover a primary Admin Node, you must first replace the physical or virtual hardware.

About this task

You can replace a failed primary Admin Node with a primary Admin Node running on the same platform, or you can replace a primary Admin Node running on VMware or a Linux host with a primary Admin Node hosted on a services appliance.

Use the procedure that matches the replacement platform you select for the 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 primary Admin Node recovery.

Linux: The 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
SG100 and SG1000 services appliances 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.
