Stop all the Spectrum Technology Platform nodes in the cluster. For more information, see Stopping a Cluster. If your cluster has a separated configuration database cluster, you only need to stop the server cluster, not the configuration database cluster.

Start all nodes in the cluster consecutively.
Note: Make sure that you start node 2 within only a few seconds after starting node 1, and repeat this for each remaining node.
