How to correctly restart a Confluence Cluster

Hi everyone.

I'm wondering about the correct way to restart a Confluence cluster (like after hardware failure or maintenance).

Do I have to start the cluster node by node or can I restart every node at the same time. I would like to use the the latter strategy for ease of configuration (automated restarts and the like) but I'm a bit worried that I might end up with Cluster panic or inconsistent cluster nodes.

You have to start the cluster node by node instead of the simultaneous restart otherwise your instance will experience cluster panic and clustersafety table will end up having more than one record.

Hi Hanis,

so it's as I feared. However, thank you for the quick response :)
