We have two nodes (master and backup)
We’re looking to replace the master node with a newer computer. We already replaced the backup node with a new computer. What is the best way to accomplish this? Some options and thoughts running through my head:
- Set Master mode to Independent - hoping I can then set backup node to Master but not sure if it will let me.
- Set backup node to Master - Can you even have 2 Masters? Seems like that wouldn’t allow me to do that.
- Set the master node to Backup - I doubt you can have two backups. No one will be in charge.
4.Simultaneously set the master to backup and the backup to master–I wish there was a switch option that could be initiated from one of the gateways. Maybe Failing over kind of sets the backup as a “Master”.
Surely someone has had to do this before. I really need to be careful I don’t sync a “fresh” gateway with no config to a running backup node that all of my 200 clients are connected to.
