If our standby server does not have an APE license, how does Settings > All Settings > High Availability Deployment Summary identify it in the UI?
I've been told before that an APE license is NOT needed for a standby server so I'm just wanting to clarify this.
In addition to polling metrics, individual pool members list a Server Type and an HA Run Type. Select a pool member to view the pool member type and other polling information.
An HA standby server only needs an HA license. It does not need anything else. It is there to provide redundancy to another, already licensed product. So if you want to make an APE highly available, all you need is your original APE license used on your existing APE server, and one HA license that is used on the standby server.
