| | BES failover scenario question
Please Login to Remove!
Does anyone know if a 2 to 1 failover scenario is possible for BES?
By this I mean, having one failover (standby) server available to take over if one of two production servers had issues? We currently have a 1 to 1 scenario in place and working, but the customer wants to add a 2nd BES server to the mix... if possible without having to get a separate standby/ failover server for it. Both production servers would share the same SQL database.
The potential issue I am thinking about, is the BES server name would not be the same. So if the standby/failover server was set to be standby for BES-A and BES-B failed, how would we get the standby/failover server to "become" BES-B without a full uninstall/reinstall to change the BES name?
Anyone have any ideas?
