Recover from storage volume failure where system drive is intact: Workflow


You must complete a series of tasks to recover a software-based Storage Node where one or more storage volumes on the Storage Node have failed, but the system drive is intact. If only storage volumes have failed, the Storage Node is still available to the StorageGRID system.

Note This recovery procedure applies to software-based Storage Nodes only. If storage volumes have failed on an appliance Storage Node, use the appliance procedure instead: Recover appliance Storage Node.

As shown in the workflow diagram, you must identify and unmount failed storage volumes, recover the volumes, rebuild the Cassandra database, and restore object data.
