13 Monitoring Failover Manager : 13.1.1 Replacing a Master Node

You can use the PEM client to replace the Master node of a Failover Manager cluster with a standby node. To initiate the failover process, select Replace Cluster Master from the Management menu. A dialog opens, asking you to confirm that you wish to replace the current master node (see Figure 13.2).

Select Yes to remove the current master node from the Failover Manager cluster and promote a standby node to the role of read/write master node within a Failover Manager cluster. The node with the highest promotion priority (defined in Failover Manager) will become the new master node. PEM will display a dialog, reporting the job status (see Figure 13.3).

When the job completes and the Streaming Replication Analysis dashboard refreshes, you can review the Failover Manager Node Status table to confirm that a standby node has been promoted to the role of master within the Failover Manager cluster.
