I may have misunderstood how recovery works with raft storage.
Here is my setup:
- vault version: 1.4.0 (also tried with 1.4.1)
- 3 node HA vault cluster, all nodes unsealed
- storage is raft integrated storage (recently migrated from etcd)
- several snapshots have been taken
issue: if I reboot all nodes simultaneously, I can’t get my cluster back into a working state. The only option available to each node is to either create a new raft cluster, or join an existing raft cluster.
Initialising a new raft cluster, creates new keys, and it seems I therefore cant use my snapshots. There is also no existing raft cluster to join, since I intentionally took it down.
how does someone recover from this kind of failure?
