Chapter 17. Stopping and Restarting Red Hat Storage Instance

When you stop and restart a Red Hat Storage instance, a new IP address and hostname is assigned by Amazon Web Services and it looses its association with the virtual hardware. Hence, the newly restarted Red Hat Storage instance will not be part of the storage pool and causes disruptions to the trusted storage pool. If the restarted Red Hat Storage instance is not part of trusted storage pool, add it to the trusted pool as described in Section 7.1, “Adding Servers to Trusted Storage Pool”.
Rebooting the Red Hat Storage instance preserves the IP address and hostname and does not loose its association with the virtual hardware. This does not cause any disruptions to the trusted storage pool.
