ONTAP 9.14.1 commands

system configuration recovery cluster rejoin

Rejoin a cluster

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the advanced privilege level.


The system configuration recovery cluster rejoin command rejoins a node to a new cluster created earlier using the system configuration recovery cluster recreate command. Only use this command to recover a node from a disaster. Because this synchronization can overwrite critical cluster information, and will restart the node you specify, you are required to confirm this command before it executes.


-node {<nodename>|local} - Node to Rejoin

Use this parameter to specify the node to rejoin to the cluster.


This example shows how to rejoin the node node2 to the cluster.

cluster1::*> system configuration recovery cluster rejoin -node node2

Warning: This command will rejoin node "node2" into the local cluster,
         potentially overwriting critical cluster configuration files. This
         command should only be used to recover from a disaster. Do not perform
         any other recovery operations while this operation is in progress.
         This command will cause node "node2" to reboot.
