request node (offline | online)



Use this command to change the node status to offline or online.

  • To add a node to the cluster, set the node status to online.

  • To remove a node from the cluster, set the node status to offline.

    You can use the offline option to stop all applications on the node and move them to other nodes if applicable. The node is not allowed to join the cluster until the node is made online by using the request node online command.

    When you use the request node offline for fpc or spmb nodes, the node is powered off. When used for an re node, the node just reboots.
