Move node from one rack to another

Jump to solution

Hi All,

I have a question for you. Hope somebody have some experience with that.

We have completed a CICM in a 5 cube centera, because All cube 1 and nodes from c002n01 to c002n12 have old GEN4 nodes and must be removed.

The migration finished fine but after remove the old GEN4 nodes, now we have a Rack with 4 GEN4LP (c002n13 to c002n16) nodes and another rack with the last new 6 nodes (c005n01 to c005n06).

I want to move the last c005n01 to c005n06 nodes to the first rack in poistions c002n06 to c002n12, to remove last rack form site, and have all nodes together.

Which is the best way to do that? Remove nodes from cluster and add it again? CICM?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Yes you can follow the procedures to erase and reload the node and move to another cluster.

You can use the empty positions in Cube 2 - just not with the nodes that have been removed from any location in the same cluster.

You can consolidate the two cubes into one rack.  You can move cube 5 into the same rack as cube 2, however you cannot move the nodes from cube 5 (c005n01 to c005n06) into cube 2's "empty" positions.  The cube interconnections would be on ports 19/20.

If there is space available you could do another CICM. Please remember that you cannot perform a CICM and then add those nodes back into the same cluster.  If another cluster (DR site) is available you could move those nodes that have undergone a CICM and been reinitialized into that cluster.

Ok.

I have two Centeras with the same situation. So I can do a CICM and use the nodes from one cluster to add it to the other cluster. (swap the nodes between clusters).

But, why I can't use the empty positions of Cube2? If I attach the nodes to the correct Switch ports, cluster must detect the new nodes in this positions right? Or the removed positions of old nodes will be empty forever?

Thanks in advance,
