ADSelfService Plus utilizes automatic failover to support high availability in case of system and product failures. Essentially, this means that when the ADSelfService Plus service on one machine fails, another instance of ADSelfService Plus running on another machine automatically takes over. This ensures end users get uninterrupted access to the products' features such as self-service password management and single sign-on.
Before configuring high availability in ADSelfService Plus, ensure that the following conditions are satisfied.
Condition 1: ADSelfService Plus must be downloaded and installed in two separate machines.

Once high availability has been configured, this virtual IP address will be used to access ADSelfService Plus.
Condition 4: High availability can only be implemented if the Failover and Secure Gateway Services add-on has been purchased. Visit our store to purchase the add-on.
