This topic provides instructions to install the TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server in high availability cluster mode on Linux operating systems.
The following application is required to control high-availability for Infrastructure Management on Linux operating systems:
Red Hat Availability add-on for Linux (with Resilient Storage add-on if GFS2 is required)
Infrastructure Management is not supported on VMware with VMWare Fault Tolerance (FT) as Infrastructure Management high availability support.
Ensure that the following prerequisite tasks are performed or checked before installing Infrastructure Management in HA OS cluster mode:
The following procedure explains how to install the BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server in HA OS cluster mode on primary and secondary servers:
Install BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server on the primary node.
During the installation, choose the cluster file system (/global) that is shared on both nodes as the installation location.
The installation is completed successfully.
On the primary node, remove the following files so that the Infrastructure Management application does not start:
Stop all processes on the primary node. Use the following command:
pw sys stop.
Move the shared disk from primary node to the standby node. Use one of the following commands:
(For RHEL 6.x)
clusvcadm -r logicalhostname -n Standbymodehostname(For RHEL 7.0)
pcs resource move <resource group name> StandbymodehostnameDo not execute the above commands on the shared disk.
You can use the following command to find the resource group name on the primary host:
ln -s /serverInstallDirectory/pw /usr/pw
ln -s /usr/pw/pronto /usr/pronto
ln -s /usr/pw/pronto/bin/pw /bin/pw
pw sys start
crontab -lcommand and check for all entries between the lines
CreateCrontabEntries.sh linux <Database>where <Database> can be Oracle or SAP SQL Anywhere
CreateCrontabEntries.sh linux Oracle
After moving the shared disk from the primary node to the standby node, the status of all BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server components must be Connected on the BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server Registration page.
BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server must successfully connect to Integration Service and PATROL Agent.
