You achieve this by associating a priority to each FT group.


ft group 1

peer 1

priority 150

peer priority 110

associate-context Admin


ft group 2

peer 1

priority 150

peer priority 110

associate-context Foo-Bar



That's all you need. For further details have a look at the ACE-Admin Guide.

what about SSL Certificat and SSL Key does they replacated to the second ACE or we need to export and import them to the second ACE

You'll need to export and re-import into the contexts on the second ACE. If there is a difference in the files then replication will stop working.

Yup, certificates and keys have to be manually imported on both ACE's.
