Basically you need to take a fresh backup from new master and restart
using it. But, if S1 and S2 share the archive, S1 is ahead of S2
(i.e., the replay location
of S1 is bigger than or equal to that of S2), and
recovery_target_timeline is set to
'latest' in S2's recovery.conf, you can skip taking a fresh backup
from new master.
In this case, you can re-point S2 as a standby just by changing
S2's recovery.conf and restarting S2. When S2 restarts, S2 reads the
file which was created by S1 at failover and adjust its timeline ID to
S1's. So timeline
conflict doesn't happen.
