Can't initialize Vertica in 3 nodes cluster after 1 machine down
Hi, I have a 3 nodes cluster, 1 of the machine is out of service because I need to reinstall however I am assuming that the other machines should work properly. I have the following messages from vertica.log in one of machines that should be working.
