Replace the Storage Node


If the system drive has failed, you must first replace the Storage Node.

You must select the node replacement procedure for your platform. The steps to replace a node are the same for all types of grid nodes.

Note This procedure applies to software-based Storage Nodes only. You must follow a different procedure to recover an appliance Storage Node.

Linux: If you aren't sure if your system drive has failed, follow the instructions to replace the node to determine which recovery steps are required.

Platform Procedure




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.
