Question:

In use of policy server clustering, tell me about configuration of it.
When I register as below SmHost.conf and HCO, but not failed over from PS_1 to PS_2 and PS_3 properly.

1. Host Configuration Objects (in AdminUI)

Move to Infrastructure > Hosts > Host Configuration Objects > Clusters

Add clustering policy servers as following.

PS_1,44443"

PS_2,44443"

PS_3,44443"

 

2. SmHost.conf

Add connecting policy server list as following.

#Add additional bootstrap policy servers here for fault tolerance.

policyserver="<IP Address1>,44441,44442,44443"

 

Answer:

These registration is correct.

SmHost.conf is loaded only when LLAWP startup, and HCO is loaded at WebAgent side.

After starting up LLAWP, Policy Servers are failed over and back as registration of HCO.

So, this seems to be product issue.

The workaround is added and matched SmHost.conf and HCO connection info as below.

 

1. Host Configuration Objects (in AdminUI)

Move to Infrastructure > Hosts > Host Configuration Objects > Clusters

Add clustering policy servers as following.

PS_1,44443"

PS_2,44443"

PS_3,44443"

 

2. SmHost.conf

Add connecting policy server list as following.

#Add additional bootstrap policy servers here for fault tolerance.

PS_1,44441,44442,44443"

PS_2,44441,44442,44443"

PS_3,44441,44442,44443"
