  • Ensure that you take a backup of the Platform1 node before you create clusters. Refer to VMware best practices to take the backup of virtual machines (like VMware VDP using VADP). Restore the Platform1 node from backup if there is an unrecoverable error while creating the cluster. It is recommended that you use cleanly deployed platform nodes while creating clusters. Redeploy the new platform nodes (p2-pn) before restarting cluster creation process if there is an unrecoverable error.
