Replacing a failed node with a services appliance

You can use an SG100 or SG1000 services appliance to recover a failed Gateway Node, a failed non-primary Admin Node, or a failed primary Admin Node that was hosted on VMware, a Linux host, or a services appliance. This procedure is one step of the grid node recovery procedure.

Before you begin

Attention: Do not deploy both an SG100 and an SG1000 service appliance in the same site. Unpredictable performance might result.
