Greetings & Salutations my fellow Thwackians...
We are trying to utilize our Microsoft Domain through Active Directory and DNS to establish several regional High Availability Pollers. We have come up with a conceptual drawing, please see the attached PNG file. Our questions are:
- Has anyone done this yet?
--- If so, how were you able to utilize a "Virtual Host Name" for polling traffic instead of going to the primary poller?
- We have followed the steps in this SW Article.
- We have successfully run "WBEMTEST"
When triggering a failover, SW successfully fails over to the HA/failover poller with the appropriate server services on each server stopping and starting. However, there is no change in our DNS to redirect traffic to the HA/failover poller.
--- The end result is inbound agent node and web traffic do not see the failover and are still pointed to the inactive poller.
--- Has anyone been able to get this to work?
