Replacing Failed Disks

If the disk on which the data or catalog directory resides fails, causing full or partial disk loss, perform the following steps:

  1. Replace the disk and recreate the data or catalog directory.
  2. Distribute the configuration file (vertica.conf) to the new host. See Distributing Configuration Files to the New Host for details.

  3. Restart the Vertica on the host, as described in Restart Vertica On Host.

See Catalog and Data Files for information about finding your DATABASE_HOME_DIR.
