Converting an Existing Node to a Task Node

If the Fileserver is running on a node assigned to a topology with volume data assigned to it, you will need to use the maprcli node move command to move the node to the /compute-only topology (or some other topology with no volumes assigned to it). For example:
  1. Find the serverid for the node, which you will use in the next step. See Troubleshooting and search for How to find a node's serverid.
  2. Issue the following command to re-assign the node's topology:
    maprcli node move -serverids <serverid> -topology /compute-only
    It will then take time for any data stored on the node to transition elsewhere in the cluster.
