Learn how to kickoff a restart in a cluster.
You can use the Cluster Setup page of the Administration Console to restart the current Vocera Voice Server (the server you are browsing with the Administration Console):
If the current Vocera Voice Server is active, it restarts and the cluster fails over control to one of the standby servers.
If the current Vocera Voice Server was just added to the list of cluster members, it restarts and joins the cluster.
You can use the Cluster Setup page of the Administration Console to force a failover of the active server. If you have just entered a server in the list of clustered nodes, the Cluster Setup page lets you restart it to add it to the cluster.
To fail over or restart a server:
Vocera logs you out of the Administration Console, and either of the following situations occurs:
If you were in the Administration Console of the active server, it fails over control to one of the standby servers.
If you were using the Administration Console of a server that was just added to the list of clustered nodes, it restarts as a standby node in the cluster.
The server performs a fast restart. It does not perform a full restart of all Vocera-related services. You must use the Failover command in the Cluster menu of the Vocera Control Panel to perform a full restart.
