Restarting a Standby Node

Follow these steps to restart a standby node.

You can restart a standby node at any time without affecting the cluster. You must use the Vocera Control Panel to restart a standby node, because the Administration Console for a cluster provides access to the active node only.

Note: You can use the Administration Console to restart a server when you add it to a cluster. After adding the machine to the cluster, you must use the Vocera Control Panel to restart it. See Setting Up an Initial Cluster Configuration.

To restart a standby node:

  1. Display the Vocera Control Panel on the node that you want to restart.
  2. Choose Failover from the Cluster menu of the Vocera Control Panel.
    A dialog box asks you to confirm the failover.
  3. Click OK.
    The node restarts without affecting the cluster.
