I've been configuring a ClearPass cluster without automatic failover, and I'm curious to know the correct process for restoring to the original state following a manual failover...
CP1 = Publisher
CP2 = Subscriber
Scenario: CP1 fails (data centre gets hit by an asteroid) and CP2 is manually promoted to Publisher.
What is the correct way to eventually rebuild CP1 and re-add to the cluster as Publisher, without loosing any configuration changes that have been made while CP2 has been Publisher?
I'm guessing the following?
1) Re-add CP1 as subscriber to CP2
2) Shutdown CP2
3) Promote CP1 to subscriber
4) Reset database on CP2 and make subscriber to CP1

Did you read my CPPM Clustering TechNote, page 44-45 covers what you need to do.
- on CP2 you likely have to force drop the CP1 node
- on CP1 in the cli 'cluster reset-database'
- reload CP1
- re-add CP1 node to cluster
- then after they have sync'd you'll have to promote the nodes as required.
