Subject Re: restore with snapshot

This is a very important thread for me also.

I have assumed up to this point in time that the Nodes IP is not part of the
equation at all.

I have assumed that a new node with the exact same data store files an
configuration but with a new IP value can replace that same node.

I will test this out ASAP.  I should not have assumes this is true.

I will report my findings.  ( yes this is a EBS SNAP ).
