I was checking the FAQ about cloud services and I didn't get information about Failover pairs, hence I'm asking here:
- What are the guidelines to use Cloud Services in a Failover pair? Do we need to connect both servers (main + backup) to the Cloud?
the answer depends on the architecture of your DataMiner System and which agents are being used to connect the system to the cloud.
- Failover pair hosts Cloud Connection:
If the primary agent of the failover pair is hosting the Cloud Connection, we want the backup agent to pick up the connection to the cloud. To be able to achieve this you will need to install the full Cloud Pack on both the Primary and the Backup agent.
- Failover pair does not host Cloud Connection:
In this case no special actions need to be taken since the Cloud Connection is managed by another DataMiner agent.
Hope this helps.
