4.6.3. Removing a Member from a Failover Domain

To remove a member from a failover domain, follow these steps:

  1. At the left frame of the the Cluster Configuration Tool, click the failover domain that you want to change (listed under Failover Domains).

  2. At the bottom of the right frame (labeled Properties), click the Edit Failover Domain Properties button. Clicking the Edit Failover Domain Properties button causes the Failover Domain Configuration dialog box to be displayed (Figure 4.7, “Failover Domain Configuration: Configuring a Failover Domain”).

  3. At the Failover Domain Configuration dialog box, in the Member Node column, click the node name that you want to delete from the failover domain and click the Remove Member from Domain button. Clicking Remove Member from Domain removes the node from the Member Node column. Repeat this step for each node that is to be deleted from the failover domain. (Nodes must be deleted one at a time.)

  4. When finished, click Close.

  5. At the Cluster Configuration Tool, perform one of the following actions depending on whether the configuration is for a new cluster or for one that is operational and running:

    • New cluster — If this is a new cluster, choose File => Save to save the changes to the cluster configuration.

    • Running cluster — If this cluster is operational and running, and you want to propagate the change immediately, click the Send to Cluster button. Clicking Send to Cluster automatically saves the configuration change. If you do not want to propagate the change immediately, choose File => Save to save the changes to the cluster configuration.
