Re: What is the way to implement failover where DDBOOST IFGroup is configured?


how does -failover hostname option work ?  Let's say i cannot use LACP/Failover for my "entry point" interface. So on my host i create two entries in /etc/hosts ddmain.mycompany.com ddmain-failover.mycompany.com

1) Does it work with DDboost capable applications only ?

2) Is DDboost capable app looks in the hosts file to determine the next working interface ?

3) Does it work with Avamar ? Would i configure the host file on the utility node only or storage nodes as well ?

4) Does it work with DDboost for RMAN ?

Thank you
