Removing a Secondary Appliance from the Cluster

Removing a disconnected secondary appliance from the cluster reduces the clutter in the nodes list and widgets of the active primary appliance.

  1. On the management console of the active primary appliance, go to Administration > System Settings and click the Cluster tab.
  2. Wait for Remove to appear next to the secondary appliance in the nodes list.
    Note:

    Secondary appliances attempt to connect to the active primary appliance every 10 seconds. If the active primary appliance does not receive a heartbeat within one minute, Remove appears next to the secondary appliance in the Nodes list.

    Secondary appliances automatically rejoin the cluster if they reconnect to the active primary appliance.

  3. Click Remove to remove the secondary appliance from the cluster.

    The secondary appliance is removed from the nodes list and widgets of the active primary appliance.
