14 Configuring Streaming Replication : 14.2 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 start the failover process, select the Replace Cluster Master menu selection on the Management menu. When you click the Replace Cluster Master menu option, a dialog opens, asking you to confirm that you wish to replace the current master node (see Figure 14.13).

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 14.14).

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.
