Asked a question recently

When I shutdown a HA headnode manually, failover doesn't occur. Why?

Where am I?

In Bright Computing, Inc. you can ask and answer questions and share your experience with others!

Manually shutting down a headnode means:

  • Running the Linux shutdown or poweroff command.
  • Triggering a shutdown with sysrq.


Shutting down a HA node manually, implies manual failover. Automatic failover won’t occur in this circumstance.

Please see the "Automated Failover And Relevant Testing" section of the admin guide. “
