Yes, it is currently the Master BE

The RPi is called "trieli" and the Lenovo is called "daryl".
I've created a new database backup from the RPi (host name trieli) so I'll
need to change Lenove's hostname from daryl to trieli to be able to: drop,
create, and restore this new db?

Or can I move the database from the master (RPi) to the slave (Lenovo) and
then configure the Lenovo to be  the master?

TIA  Daryl
