HA-CDP installation worksheet

The high-availability configuration distribution peer (HA-CDP) is a secondary CDP that provides redundancy in a high-availability environment and is an optional server component of BMC Atrium Orchestrator. Until a failover occurs, a secondary CDP functions as an AP.

You can install a secondary CDP after you have installed the repository and the primary CDP. Before installing the HA-CDP, use the following worksheet to record information specific to your system. The installation parameters in the table correspond to the parameters in the GUI installation and the options file. For more information about high availability for the CDP, see Working in high-availability environments.

Before installing the HA-CDP, you must use Grid Manager to add this peer to a grid, as described in Adding peers.
