I must remove an old node witch is the master for HA
How to transfer this role to another node ?
Simply stop the odl node an remove it from the cluster and the system select a new one for master role ?
Or as I have read in the forum :
use the following ?
  1. force a node to a master: pveca -m
  2. tell all the other nodes to sync from the new master: pveca -s -h IP_of_new_master
The commande pveca -m must be run on the new one node witch I chose for the master ?
The command pveca -s -h IP_of_new_master must be run on each nodes of the cluster and also on the master himself ?

I have read this... Bust in the GUI I have for the HA status with "master" and "lrm" types.
What about if I remove definiltively the the node who as the type as "master" ?
