Sumit Mohanty created AMBARI-10029:

             Summary: Node auto-recovery
                 Key: AMBARI-10029
             Project: Ambari
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: ambari-agent, ambari-server

Ambari. This is especially useful in the cloud environment. However, cloud environment also
can be dynamic in the sense that nodes will get rebooted or reset to the original image.

Reset, being that the node (usually VM) gets reverted to original state where it joined the
cluster. It is assumed that a reset node has ambari-agent installed and configured to communicate
with the server. The node may also have all packages pre-instaled.

Node recovery is the feature to bring back a rebooted/reset online by starting or installing
and then starting the host components that are already on the host.

In general, temporarily losing a node and then performing node recovery on a slave host should
not affect the whole cluster. If its is a master node then there can be some disruption based
on what is deployed on the master host and if HA is enabled for the master services or not.

Node recovery, discussed in this JIRA, only addresses the ability to automatically INSTALL/CONFIGURE/START
host components on the node so that the desired state of the host component matches the actual
