Introduction:
Does the EnableFailover HCO setting apply to Cluster HCO's?Ā 
Question:
We are using cluster definition in our policy servers, so ideally we shouldn't set enable failover in siteminder WAM UI. But its set to YES. can you please suggest what is the right option for cluster definition.
Environment:
SiteMinder 12.0 and newer
Any OS
Answer:
EnableFailover is only used for legacy HCO configurations, it is ignored for Cluster HCO's. Additionally a host configuration object should specify policy servers either in the cluster configuration section, or the traditional policy server section - not both. Different agents may react differently to the information being located both places.
