Problem

I removed my fail-over Server and tried to re-add it back to my site.

I got an error message saying it is already attached to the site.

Solution

Go to the failover server and navigate to:

c:\program files (x86)\Cathexis Server\failover\data\control\

Remove the file called "config.xml".

Reboot the server

The hotspares for a site are identified by their IP address. To change the IP address of a hotspare they should remove it as a hotspare from the site, change the IP, and then re-add it using the new IP.

There are quite clear messages when you remove a hotspare from the site that the hotspare should be connected, so it can clean itself up (remove the configuration). If it is removed from a site without being connected you end up with the problem listed in this FAQ.
