4 Using Failover Manager : 4.4 Promoting a Failover Manager Node

You can invoke efm promote on any node of a Failover Manager cluster to start a manual promotion of a Standby database to Master database. Manual promotion should only be performed during a maintenance window for your database cluster. If you do not have an up-to-date Standby database available, you will be prompted before continuing. To start a manual promotion, assume the identity of efm or the OS superuser, and invoke the command:
efm promote cluster_name
During a manual promotion, the Master agent releases the virtual IP address before creating a recovery.conf file in the directory specified by the db.recovery.conf.dir parameter. The Master agent remains running, and assumes a status of Idle.
