9.12 Adding a Node That Was Previously in the Cluster

  1. If your storage array and devices are not configured, configure them before you install Novell Cluster Services.

  2. If necessary, install OES 2 Linux and Novell Cluster Services, including the latest Service Pack on the server using the same node name and IP address of the node that was previously in the cluster.

  3. If the Cluster object for the server is still present, delete the object.

    For information, see Section 9.13, Deleting a Cluster Node from a Cluster.

  4. Run the Novell Cluster Services installation by following the procedure outlined in Section 5.4.2, Installing Novell Cluster Services on an Existing OES 2 Linux Server.

    The node assumes its former identity.
