I have a 19.2.0 cluster with 9 nodes. Today one of the nodes died due to HW failure and shows up as dead node. I want to decommission the node and add a new node with same hostname and IP as the dead node (background is that we have lots of “application” nodes with IP tables rules that I do not want to update… therefore I prefer to add a node with the exact same IP like the dead one).
Is this approach possible or is the IP in any way “blocked” when it shows up in the decommissioned list or is reusing the same IP a bad practise?
thx for any advise before I start fixing the situation
