» operator step-down
operator step-down forces the Vault server at the given address to step
down from active duty. While the affected node will have a delay before
attempting to acquire the leader lock again, if no other Vault nodes acquire the
lock beforehand, it is possible for the same node to re-acquire the lock and
become active again.
Force a Vault server to step down as the leader:
$ vault operator step-down Success! Stepped down: http://127.0.0.1:8200
