Hi All, I am running around in circles with the setup of TimeScaleDB. I have at the moment 2 nodes. 1 master, 1 slave.. For this example If reboot the master, it comes up as unresponsive. The slave becomes the master. However when the old master comes up. It stays as master in yellow. There is no option to promote back to master or even be a slave.. There is only the option to rebuild node to be a slave.
What I would be expecting is self recovery so if the new master fails, the slave will become master. Any recovered master returns to a slave or takes back it's master role after a database sync.
It seems timescaledb isn't setup for fail over and with a virtual IP to the current master.
Any suggestions please to assist in my setup?
