How to Remove a Cluster Node from Active Copy Operations

  1. If a cluster node that was added for copy job operations is no longer required, or needs maintenance, or has performance issues it is possible to remove a node on the fly with active copy jobs.   This will stop sending files to this node(s).
    1. searchctl isilons modify --name <name of cluster> --isilon-ips x.x.x.x y.y.y.y .(Enter the list of IP's that should be used and remove the IP of the node you no longer want to receive copy job files from the list or range of IP's)
    2. See options for list of ip's or a range in "Add a cluster to Inventory" in the Golden Copy Configuration Steps guide for more details.
