Remove a Node

This page will walk you through the steps to remove a node from your FaunaDB Enterprise cluster. While you can remove multiple nodes at a time, we talk about it below like you’re just removing one.

Remove Node from FaunaDB Enterprise Cluster

To remove a node from your Enterprise cluster:

  1. From any node in your Enterprise cluster, use the status admin command to get the node’s Host ID:

    faunadb-admin status
  2. Use the returned Host ID to remove the node with the remove admin command:

    faunadb-admin remove »ID«
  3. Verify that the removal was successful by running:

    faunadb-admin status

    When your node has been successfully removed, you will no longer see it in the status list.

  4. Shut down FaunaDB on the node you would like to remove using whatever method you prefer (supervisor, systemd, init, etc.) to stop the process.
