23.4. Stopping and Restarting Red Hat Gluster Storage Instance

When you stop and restart a Red Hat Gluster Storage instance, Amazon Web Services assigns the instance a new IP address and hostname. This results in the instance losing its association with the virtual hardware, causing disruptions to the trusted storage pool. To prevent errors, add the restarted Red Hat Gluster Storage instance to the trusted storage pool. See Section 5.1, “Adding Servers to the Trusted Storage Pool”.
Rebooting the Red Hat Gluster Storage instance preserves the IP address and hostname and does not lose its association with the virtual hardware. This does not cause any disruptions to the trusted storage pool.
