BES HA - Rebuilding a node
Posted on 2011-04-19
We are looking to redeploy one of the BES VM's from scratch as it is having issues.
To cut a long story short, there's been resource looking into this for quite some time and we are unable to track the problem to any of the components individually.
Our proposed fix for this would be to remove one of the servers and reinstall it back into the HA cluster for BES.
Server 1 - Broken
Server 2 - Currently live
We are looking to get rid of Server 1, as Server 2 is currently operating normally and handling BES totally fine.
If we simply drop Server 1 and reinstall, will this cause issues without uninstalling it?
Is the best practice here to uninstall the BES services on Server 1 first, then drop the server?
