Renumbering cluster nodes

Is there a way to renumber cluster nodes on OES? I found a very old TID
(10072066 http://support.novell.com/docs/Tids/Solutions/10072066.html )
that describes the process for older Netware clusters, but this does not
work on OES/Linux because the cluster container object does not have an
GIPC Config attribute.

I can change the node numbers on the cluster node objects, but after doing
this the node names and ip addresses are all mixed up. So to fully
renumber, I think I also need to edit the GIPC stream.

Does anyone have an idea how to go about doing this?

Thanks,

Re: Renumbering cluster nodes

Guess I would ask why do you want to renumber cluster nodes? If you lost a
server in your cluster --then just add the new server as the same name of
the lost node -no numbering needed. Make sure you have removed all
references to the old cluster node from eDirectory -and you are done.
