You can use the Unified Archives to restore a cluster node so that it is exactly the same as the archive. Before you restore the node, you must first create a recovery archive on the cluster nodes. Only a recovery archive can be used; a clone archive cannot be used to restore a cluster node. See Step 1 below for instructions on creating the recovery archive.
This procedure prompts you for the cluster name, node names and their MAC addresses, and the path to the Unified Archives. For each archive that you specify, the scinstall utility verifies that the archive's source node name is the same as the node you are restoring. For instructions on restoring the nodes in a cluster from a Unified Archive, see How to Restore a Node from the Unified Archive.
