If you successfully promoted a replica instance to a primary instance for maintenance purposes, but you were unable to demote the original primary instance to a replica instance, complete the following procedure to manually configure the original primary instance as a replica instance.
Do one of the following:
If the original primary instance is deployed on a hardware appliance, shut down the appliance and remove the machine from service.
You can install the original hardware appliance system image. For instructions, see Hardware Appliance System Image Installation.
If the original primary instance is deployed on a virtual appliance, delete the old primary instance virtual machine from the disk.
Use the VMware vSphere client, the Hyper-V System Center Virtual Machine Manager Console, or the Hyper-V Manager. For instructions, see the vSphere or Hyper-V documentation.
Deploy a new virtual machine with the RSA Authentication Manager image.
Run Quick Setup to configure the instance as a replica. For more information, see the RSA Authentication Manager Setup and Configuration Guide.
