Command: operator raft remove-peer
Remove the Nomad server with given address from the Raft configuration.
There are rare cases where a peer may be left behind in the Raft quorum even
though the server is no longer present and known to the cluster. This command
can be used to remove the failed server so that it is no longer affects the Raft
quorum. If the server still shows in the output of the
nomad server members
command, it is preferable to clean up by running
nomad server force-leave
instead of this command.
See the Outage Recovery guide for some examples of how this command is used. For an API to perform these operations programmatically, please see the documentation for the Operator endpoint.
