Revert Active Standby Nodes

When a down node in an Enterprise Mode database is ready for reactivation, you can restore it by reverting its replacement to standby status. You can perform this operation on individual nodes or the entire database, with ALTER NODE and ALTER DATABASE, respectively:

  1. Connect to the database with Administration Tools or via vsql.
  2. Revert the standby nodes.
    • Individually with ALTER NODE:
      ALTER NODE node‑name RESET;
    • Collectively across the database cluster with ALTER DATABASE:

If a down node cannot resume operation, Vertica ignores the reset request and leaves the standby node in place.
