iris mirror nodes promote failover to primary
I have this arrangement of mirror
Node 1: Primary
Node 2: Failover
Async member is DR server
There is also an arbiter on another server
I want to make 'Node 2' primary as 'Node 1' is to be taken down for some scheduled maintenance work.
I know that I can issue 'iris stop' on 'Node 1' and 'Node 2' should takeover as Primary.
1. Is this a reliable recommended way? I have had cases in the past when the Failover node did not take over as Primary
2. Is there a better way of promoting Failover to Primary?
