<blockquote>If a server is already a slave of some master, <code name="code" class="python">SLAVEOF hostname port</code> willstop the replication against the old server and start the synchrnonizationagainst the new one discarding the old dataset.</blockquote>
<blockquote>The form <code name="code" class="python">SLAVEOF no one</code> will stop replication turning the server into aMASTER but will not discard the replication. So if the old master stop workingit is possible to turn the slave into a master and set the application touse the new master in read/write. Later when the other Redis server will befixed it can be configured in order to work as slave.</blockquote>
