We have a setup with 2 multi-masters and 3 consumers. We are now building new host and
want to put them in place ultimately at the same IP address as the original ones. I need
some advice on how to do this quickly and cleanly.
To add a new consumer the idea now is to set it up and set up replications agreements from
each master using consumer DNS name (don't start continuous replication yet). After
initializing new consumer from one master - turn off old consumer, remove old consumer
agreement from each master, and re-IP new consumer. Do we need to restart masters to
re-read DNS or will it pick that up when it starts the next replication? Is this the best
way to do this?
