Starting a Cluster

If all the nodes in a cluster are stopped, you must follow this procedure to start up the cluster safely and avoid data loss.

  1. Start the node that was shut down last.
    Warning: The first node that you start must be the last node that was shut down. Starting up another node first may result in loss of data such as job history and configuration settings. If you do not know which node was shut down last, look in each node's wrapper log for the time stamp of the shutdown message. You can find the wrapper log in: Spectrum Location\server\app\repository\logs\wrapper.log.
  2. Wait for the Spectrumâ„¢ Technology Platform server to completely start up.

    You can tell when the Spectrumâ„¢ Technology Platform server has completely started up by looking in the wrapper log: Spectrum Location\server\app\repository\logs\wrapper.log. The following message is displayed when the server is completely started:

    Pitney Bowes Spectrum(TM) Technology Platform (Version Version Number) Started.
  3. Start the other nodes in the cluster.
    Warning: Be sure to wait for the first node to start up completely before starting additional nodes. Starting up additional nodes before the first one is started may result in loss of data.
