Recommended way to restart underlying VM running Service Fabric cluster

Muriuki, Levi M 246 Reputation points

In SF, there's the concept of restarting a 'node', but this only restarts the Service Fabric hosting services. However sometimes we need to restart an underlying VM. What procedure does Service Fabric recommend for restarting a VM?

Azure Service Fabric

    I understand you are wanting to restart the VM(s) for your Service Fabric cluster in case there is an issue. Please let me know if I am misunderstanding.

    Once the cluster has been deployed you should have a VMSS in your Resource Group. You can find the name of the VMSS by navigating to Node types under the Service Fabric cluster settings. Once you have the name you can open the VMSS go to Instances and restart the individual VMs.


    Hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any questions or need further assistance.
