Re-install ECS-3.0 Community Edition

Hello-

Can somebody provide the steps to re-install ECS-3.0 Community Edition? I have a simple system running on four machines with only a pair of data drives on each. I'd like to expand the nodes to 14 drives, and it seems the cleanest way might be to do a fresh install and let the install script handle the work.

Alternately I could add the storage via normal ECS management tools but I haven't been able to decipher how that's done.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

-Tim

Tim,

The best way to expand the number of drives on Community Edition is to re-install, yes.

If you run the step1 script with the --cleanup flag, it will handle uninstallation and cleanup of associated resources for you, such as unmounting and de-partitioning the existing data disks, deleting the docker container, and so on (the documentation was updated just now to make that clearer). After that you can re-install CE by following the usual install process.
