We have a 3 DR cluster of Vertica DB servers. We would like to automate the restart of a vertica host within the cluster after patching and server reboot. I found this KB article but wanted to see if there was a way to start the host back up without using the menu system of 'admintools'
The following commands will stop and start a node
-- stop a node
adminTools -t stop_node --hosts xx.xx.xx.xx
-- start a node
adminTools -t restart_node --hosts xx.xx.xx.xx -d DBNAME -p 'password'
