Add a Node
This page will walk you through the steps to add a node to your existing FaunaDB Enterprise cluster. If you are starting from scratch, please see Set Up A New Cluster.
In order to add a node, you will need at least one node up and running in an existing replica within the FaunaDB Enterprise cluster.
Before you add a node to your Enterprise cluster, take note of the following:
If you are adding more than one node while taking live traffic, you will need to have statsd configured with FaunaDB before you begin.
Adding a node can be done in three steps, which we cover below.
Set up the new node’s configuration file (faunadb.yml) with
network_datacenter_name: The name of the replica you would like the new node to join, for example:
network_broadcast_address: the new node’s public IP address
network_listen_address: The interface address that FaunaDB will bind to for incoming requests.
auth_root_key: The root admin key for the FaunaDB Query API.
Get FaunaDB running on the new node:
faunadb -c »/path/to/faunadb.yml«
Then join the node to any node in the cluster so that it gets the data it needs:
faunadb-admin join »IP of any node in the cluster«
statusadmin command to see the remaining list of pending data transfers:
