Enterprise Edition - Failover Support


Follow the steps below to implement failover support in ManageEngine Applications Manager:


Single Database - Dual AppServer Architecture

The setup involves a primary Applications Manager, a secondary Applications Manager and a common database. The primary and secondary Applications Manager refer to the common database only. While the primary Applications Manager talks with the database, the secondary Applications Manager simply listens to the database. If the primary server goes down, the secondary server takes over. Afterwards, the initial primary server is restarted and it starts functioning as a secondary server.

Failover Setup Details

Let us assume we are going to set up three nodes - node1, node2 and node3.

Applications Manager: node1, node2

MSSQL Database: node3

When node1Applications Manager goes down, node2Applications Manager will act as secondary server.
