Run the set test_promote_master command before promoting a Grid Master Candidate to Grid Master. The command checks whether the Grid Master Candidate is connected to the rest of the Grid members. It runs a test promotion by sending specifically crafted test packets from the Grid Master Candidate and checking whether the Grid members are able to receive these packets. To view the status of the promotion, run the show test_promote_master command.

You can run a test promotion by also using the GM Test option on the Grid Manager. For more information, see Managing a Grid
