ACS primary/ secondary config

we have 4 ACS in the system: 

+) In HQ, we have 2 ACS: 1 primary and 1 secondary ACS

+) In Branch office, we have 2 secondary ACS

I suppose Primary fail, could one of secondary ACS automatic become primary so all other ACSs can continues replicate from that one ?

If not, when primary fail, we have to go each secondary and deregister. After that we choose one of 3 ACS as primary and register to that one ?

Thanks

ACS primary/ secondary config

Hey Duyen,

so you are only care about replication? right?

unfortunately if primary fails in replication there is no way for any secondary to take the role of primary and replicate to others (this is in ACS 4.x only. I don't know about 5.x).

So what you need to do is just what you metnioned, to go to each ACS server, configure one of the secondaries as primary and configure others to replicate from this new primary one.

Regards,

Amjad

In the case of a primary ACS fails the secondary will perform the functions!

Now replication can be forced manually, or you must remove the record from secondary to primary manually promoting it too!
