After a successful failover it is sometime required to restore the initial topology and promote the crashed server to master again (or even a new server with distinctive hardware characteristics). Sometimes failover can be triggered by simple network issue (not affecting the health of the initial master server) and after being resolved it might be desirable to put the old master back in the replication topology.
