Section Number and Name: 
5.1 Reintroducing the failed node

Describe the issue: 
1. It would be better to have $ cursor for postgres user. normally # means root.
#su - postgres
$pg_rewind -D ...

2. "pg_rewind" will return an error for time is not synched between master and standby node, so NTP sync step is needed before executing pg_rewind command for all related db nodes(other appliance nodes either)
    edit /etc/ntp.conf  with valid ntp server info
    #systemctl disable chronyd.service
    #systemctl stop chronyd.service
    #systemctl enable ntpd.service
    #systemctl start ntpd.service

3. Step 4. "copy over /var/lib/pgsql/.pgpass", it also needs to be owned by postgres user and the file permission must be 600.
#chown postgres:postgres /var/lib/pgsql/.pgpass
#chmod 600 /var/lib/pgsql/.pgpass

4. Step 5. NOTE " If the follow command times out and ... to re-add the node"
=> However this operation will be failing because new master server is having same a record(node-id) already for the failed node(previous master node).
=> Need to have a procedure to clean up previous node id or forcely add failed node with the same node id. 

Error msg will be like
"Configuring Replication Standby Server...
[2017-02-07 23:51:41] [ERROR] Unable to create node record
ERROR:  duplicate key value violates unique constraint "repl_nodes_pkey"
DETAIL:  Key (id)=(1) already exists."

Suggestions for improvement:
