The MARS supports a hierarchy based on local/global controller. What exactly do you mean by Primary and Backup here?

I was referring to the collaboration you are looking for b/w the two MARS boxes? MARS does not support replication etc. like you would do on a Cisco ACS box. The GC/LC scenario does not seem to hold in your design.

Only option for you in your case would be to backup the existing data from one box, and replicate to the other (i hope you have same boxes on both sites) on some regular intervals, and may be both the boxes are fully synchrnized manually.

I would not suggest the HA feature of MARs at my level as i haven't actively tested this, but if you have some sort of Metro between both sites, you can test it at your own risk.
