We had to shut down our Couchbase server nodes for maintenance and “forgot” that one of the nodes has a dynamic IP. The problem is that since the IP, and DNS (provided by AWS) have changed that node will not become active again.
I know that we should have removed the node and performed a rebalance before shutting it down, but we slipped this one. I thought about failing over the node, but the data is not complete on the other nodes, so I am stuck and do not know how I can get out of this. Is there any way we can force Couchbase to change the Server Node Name of a down node so it reintegrates the cluster?
We are running Couchbase version 4.1.0-5005 Enterprise Edition
Any help will be appreciated.
