Error description

  • .
    
    It looks like the documented setup for nco_proxyserv in failover
    using
     nco_pa has not been tested.
    .
    What appears to work is that  in this case  one needs to set
    PROXYP
    props option RemoteServer to  AGG_V and not AGG73. (ie point it
    to
    the VIRTUAL PAIR not the Primary objectserver)
    .
    It  also works if you stop both AGG73(primary objectserver ) and
    PROXYP.
    
    Regression apar = no

Problem conclusion

  • The -Configuring proxy servers for failover- topic has been
    updated to include instructions for configuring high
    availability when the primary proxy server is run under process
    control.
    
    The solution to the problem is to point the primary proxy server
    to the virtual ObjectServer pair AGG_V. When the primary
    ObjectServer fails, events routed through PROXY_P are then sent
    to the backup ObjectServer.
