4.5. Replacing a Cluster Node

4.5.1. Corosync

The five-step guide to replacing an existing cluster node:
  1. Make sure the old node is completely stopped
  2. Give the new machine the same hostname and IP address as the old one
  3. Install the cluster software :-)
  4. Copy /etc/corosync/corosync.conf and /etc/ais/authkey (if it exists) to the new node
  5. Start the new cluster node
If a log message containing "Invalid digest" appears from Corosync, the keys are not consistent between the machines.
