Good afternoon folks,
I'm working on my first Solarwinds deployment. I'm having trouble getting one of my nodes to switch over via the failover engine. Let me tell you a bit about our topology:
One server running Solarwinds + MSSQL
One Server Running MSSQL (A high availability group has been created, Solarwinds is pointed at the floating IP). The database files are on drive D.
One additional polling engine.
A clone of the additional polling engine running a failover engine
A clone of drive C of the Solarwinds/SQL Server running a failover engine.
If I initiate a manual switchover or failover of the additional polling engine, it works very nicely. If I try a switchover of the Solarwinds/Web server it never completes. When I look in the logs on the failover box I see an error about the SQL Reporting Service being unable to start due to a missing file. Does the FoE need to start the SQL server, or is something else going on?
This is just a product of my own noobishness. Nothing to worry about here.
