Switch to Prefrered Server

0

Greetings,

 

we would like to set two of our Loadmasters into one Master and one Backup. For this there is this manual: https://support.kemptechnologies.com/hc/en-us/articles/201758226-Switch-to-Preferred-Server

 

The question that I have is, do I need to restart the System for making the configuration active or does this happen in the backround with no downtime or similar happening? 

 

Thank you for you time!

Hello Florian,

changes to the "Preferred Server" in HA would affect after a few seconds

setting the current master as preferred , shouldn't affect production traffic
e.g. unit 1 is currently master unit 2 is currently standby, setting HA first to be preferred 

setting the current standby as preferred , will cause a fail over, this would  affect production traffic and cause connections to drop 
e.g. unit 1 is currently master unit 2 is currently standby, setting HA second to be preferred 


let me know if you have further questions on this
