Shutting Down a Cluster

To shut down an entire cluster:

  1. Identify which nodes are seed nodes. To do this, open the file SpectrumFolder/server/app/conf/spectrum-container.properties and look at the nodes listed in the spectrum.cluser.seeds property.
  2. Shut down each Spectrum™ Technology Platform server in the cluster, making sure that the last node you shut down is a seed node.
    • On Unix or Linux, change the working directory to the Spectrum™ Technology Platform server's bin directory, source the setup file, then type the following command: ./server.stop .
    • On Windows, right-click the Spectrum™ Technology Platform icon in the Windows system tray and select Stop Spectrum™.
    Warning: To prevent loss of data the last node you shut down must be a seed node.
  3. Make a note of which node was the last node you shut down. You will need this information when starting up the cluster.
    Warning: To prevent loss of data when starting the cluster, the first node you start must be the last node that was shut down, and that node must be a seed node.
