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.

Repository HA Address

Provide the repository IP address and port for communication with the enterprise service bus. Use the following format:

<IPaddress>:<port>

On a machine that has multiple network interface cards (NICs) this must be the IP address that allows access from the CDP and/or the HA-CDP.

The default port is the repository web port plus 10. For example, if the repository port is 28080, the Repository HA address is 28090.

Notes

  • This entry is required for installations/upgrades with embedded RSSO installations. This is not applicable if you are using external RSSO on the CDP.
  • Often multiple IP addresses are detected by the installer (on a machine that has multiple NICs). Verify the default address and port number and replace them if required.

 
CDP HA Address

Provide the CDP IP address and port for communication with the enterprise service bus. Use the following format:

<IPaddress>:<port>

On a machine that has multiple network interface cards (NICs) this must be an IP address that allows access from the repository and/or the HA-CDP.

The default port is the CDP web port plus 10. For example, if the CDP port is 38080, the CDP HA address is 38090.

Notes

  • This entry is required for installations/upgrades with embedded RSSO installations. This is not applicable if you are using external RSSO on the CDP.
  • Often multiple IP addresses are detected by the installer (on a machine that has multiple NICs). Verify the default address and port number and replace them if required.

<IPaddress>:<port>

On a machine that has multiple network interface cards (NICs) this must be an IP address that allows access from the repository and/or the primary CDP.

The default port is the HA-CDP web port plus 10. For example, if the HA-CDP port is 38080, the HACDP HA address is 38090.
