I am assuming you are inquiring about configuring a Standby Central Manager address. You only have to configure the primary CM in the WAE config (central-manager address x.x.x.x or hostname) and if your system has a standby CM already registered to the Primary CM, then the Standby CM's address is replicated to the WAE via the CMS database. You shouldn't have to configure anything as long as CMS is running.

Hope that helps,

what about switch over btween standby and primary is that manual (should i manual force standby to be primary) or the standby become primary automatic (in case of primary faild).

The switch between standby to primary is manual. However, even if there is a CM outage, optmization and everything continues to run, you just won't be able to collect stats or push out new configs.

Once you promote the Standby, all the WAEs swap over and register to the new Primary CM within 2 polling cycles.

Hope that helps,
