You need not do any configuration on the primary TrueSight Presentation Server. Every installation of the Presentation Server is disaster-recovery ready. 

After a disaster, you can configure any other instance of Presentation Server as a recovery server. 

Note

You must ensure that both primary and recovery servers are installed on same platform and using the same ports and operating system locale.

Perform the following steps to configure the recovery TrueSight Presentation Server:

Step 1: Stop the recovery TrueSight Presentation Server

To stop the recovery TrueSight Presentation Server, run the following command from the <Presentation Server installation directory>\truesightpserver\bin folder:

tssh server stop

Step 2: Copy the configuration files

Using any third-party file synchronization and backup software, copy the following folders from the primary TrueSight Presentation Server to the respective directory of the recovery TrueSight Presentation Server:

On Windows:

  • $TS_HOME\data

  • $TS_HOME\modules\elasticsearch\data
  • $TS_HOME\conf

 

On Linux:

  • $TS_HOME/data
  • $TS_HOME/modules/elasticsearch/data
  • $TS_HOME/conf

Note

BMC recommends that you use any third-party file synchronization and backup software to copy these directories because traditional copying can result in an unexpected failure.

Step 3: Start the database on the recovery TrueSight Presentation Server

Run the following command from the <Presentation Server installation directory>\truesightpserver\bin folder:

tssh process start database

Step 4: Modify the host name on the recovery TrueSight Presentation Server

Run the following command from the <Presentation Server installation directory>\truesightpserver\bin folder:

tssh dr configure <Secondary DNS HostName>

Step 5: Stop the database on the recovery TrueSight Presentation Server

Run the following command from the <Presentation Server installation directory>\truesightpserver\bin folder:

tssh process stop database

Step 6: Start the recovery TrueSight Presentation Server

Run the following command from the <Presentation Server installation directory>\truesightpserver\bin folder:

tssh server start
