deploy-config Command Fails


Sometimes the deploy-config fails saying that a server restart is needed. Why?


When deploy-config is invoked, the configuration changes in the configuration store are propagated to the instances and the running servers are re-configured so that the configuration changes are picked up. But certain changes cannot be applied dynamically and need a server restart. You will hence need to run a restart-instance command in order to restart the server instances.
