Questions for Remote Site Failover

Use the following questions to assist you in planning for remote site failover:

Note –

Do not use both Sun Cluster for local HA and Veritas software for remote site failover. Sun Cluster does not support remote site failover at this time.

Also, do not allow the software to automatically failover from the primary site to the backup site. The possibility for false positive detection of failure of the primary site from the secondary site is too high. Instead, configure the software to monitor the primary site and alert you when it detects a failure. Then, confirm that the failure has happened before beginning the automated process of failing over to the backup site.
