Data Repository (Vertica) is part of a three node Vertica cluster setup. Two nodes are up but one node is down. Starting the database on the failed node fails.
In this scenario there was a power cut (UPS failed), resulting in no power to servers causing database corruption.
On the failed node run the following command:
/opt/vertica/bin/admintools -t restart_node -d <database_name> --force
Note: This operation for this customer took over an hour.
What should I do when the database node is down?
