Re: [OpenStack][Swift] Reset Swift | Clear Swift and Account Database


Hi Leander,

The following assumes that the cluster isn't in production yet:

1.  Stop all services on all machines
2.  Format and remount all storage devices
3.  Re-create rings with the correct partition size
4.  Push new rings out to all servers
5.  Start services back up and test.
