Unity Failover configuration issue...

UM 4.05, e2k offbox, CM integration - just finished installing failover on primary server sucessfully without errors. I am trying to run failover on secondary server and when I browse to select the primary server in the failover wizard, it sees every server in my domain except the primary server. I can map a drive to, ping, etc and the primary had no problem seeing the secondary a few minutes ago...have you seen this before or do I have a browser issue? Feedback appreciated as usual.

Re: Unity Failover configuration issue...

I had a similar issue which was Windows browser not working

checked the following:

Are Unity servers on the same subnet as a DC?

Are they configured in TCP/IP props to use Netbios over TCP/IP?

Is the DC a WINS server and defined in the Unity TCP/IP props as a WINS server?

If your box is isolated on it's own subnet it won't show up in the browse list.

Is the primary unity, the dc, and the secondary server pointing to the correct Active-Directory-Integrated DNS server?

Re: Unity Failover configuration issue...

sorry, I should have posted this earlier when I resolved the issue. As it turned out, it was a DNS issue - we had re-IPd the servers and moved them, but the entries in DNS were not updated as requested. Once the DNS entries were updated to reflect the new servernames/IPs, the issue resolved itself.
