Force Start the Cluster

Restart process cannot be completed if a member crashes permanently and cannot recover from the failure since it cannot start or it fails to load its own data. In that case, you can force the cluster to clean its persisted data and make a fresh start. This process is called force start.

Force Start

Click the Force Start button. A pop-up will appear and stay on screen until the operation is triggered.

If an exception occurs, this exception message will be showed on the screen as a notification.
