Forwarded from our auto-evict dev:

In the case you described, if node1 and node2 had a normal replica whereas
> node3 had a diskless one, the replacing of the resource will turn the
> diskless replica into a diskful one.
> When node1 comes back online, it will still be EVICTED. Additionally,
> linstor will then actually delete the previously moved DRBD-resources.
> However, everything else (such as storage pools, net-interfaces, etc.) is
> still there. The node can be restored (that is, moved out of the EVICTED
> status so that it can be used again) by using linstor node restore
> [nodename]
