What do you mean by "cannot act as a coordinator anymore"? AFAIK it's
possible to start a new proxy and instruct the coordinator to the new
instance. Does that work, or do you get some sort of error?

Or are you proposing that this should happen automaticaally, i.e. there
should ne numtuple GTM proxy connections and XL should failover to one
of them automatically?
