Maintain synchronized SecureTransport Edge servers

As long as your synchronized SecureTransport Edge servers meet the requirements for synchronization, you can make changes to the group, such as:

  • Change the primary server (manually failing over the primary server to another server or restoring a server to its role as primary server)
  • Add a server
  • Remove a server

The key requirement is that the <FILEDRIVEHOME>/lib/admin/config/servers configuration file is correct and identical on all servers and that only the primary server has a <FILEDRIVEHOME>/var/tmp/sentinel_primary file.

  1. Stop all the SecureTransport Edge servers.
  2. If you are adding or removing a secondary server, update the <FILEDRIVEHOME>/lib/admin/config/servers file on the primary server and copy the servers file to all the SecureTransport Edge server systems.
  3. If you are changing the primary server, list it as the first line in the <FILEDRIVEHOME>/lib/admin/config/servers file on the primary server, copy the servers file to all the SecureTransport Edge server systems, delete the <FILEDRIVEHOME>/var/tmp/sentinel_primary file on the previous primary server, and create the <FILEDRIVEHOME>/var/tmp/sentinel_primary file on the new primary server.
  4. Restart all the SecureTransport Edge servers.
  5. Log in to the Administration Tool and manually synchronize the servers.
