Who has implemented the 6.5 Broker in an HA configuration? on Solaris Sun Cluster? with multiple Broker Server instances?
I was just reading the 6.5 HA document, and it states the broker monitor process will be running on both sides of a two node cluster.
My question is, how does a broker server instance fail over?
If you have two broker server instances (A and B) running under the broker monitor on nodeA and broker server instanceA fails:
Will only Broker Server instanceA fail over to node B? And you would now have a broker server instance on each physical node of your cluster? (BrokerServerB on nodeA and BrokerServerA on nodeB)
Will both broker server instances need to fail over? Hence the only reason for the broker monitor on both nodes is a ‘quicker’ fail over?
