> I tried running pcp_recovery_node command on the node that its database was inaccessible. I got the following "primary server cannot be recovered by online recovery". To fix the node I ran pg_basebackup and it went up. How can a failed node be primary. Can pcp_recovery_node be used to get out of such situations?

No, you cannot recover the primary node by using pcp_recovery_node
(it's prohibited by design). If you believe that your primary node is
1) Promote one of standby server to create a new primary node. Do
*not* use pcp_promoto_node here. You need to execute pg_ctl promote.
2) Shutdown the broken primary server.
3) Recover the broken primary server by using pcp_recovery_node.
