When an instance is joining a ReplicaSet, recovery is used in much the same way that it is in InnoDB Cluster. MySQL Shell attempts to automatically select a suitable recovery method. If it is not possible to choose a method safely, MySQL Shell prompts for what to use. For more information, see Section 7.4.6, “Using MySQL Clone with InnoDB Cluster”. This section covers the differences when adding instances to a ReplicaSet.
