Re: TL Ashford vs High Availability



fixed

If you put 2 host table entries in the PC, would that suffice.

Yep. Upgrading switches to do otherwise was cost prohibitive.

So your not using ip'npersonation then. So when you role swap the other
box gets a new IP but the name stays the same in the dns, no dns flush,
they just change the dns to point to the other system then that now has
it(s) interface active??

Just one or two developers who use TL Ashford to design labels.

Rob, Are you talking many users or 1 user.

What? So if our development machine is named GDISYS and it's Mimix
backup
is GDISYS2 and during a switch the dns is updated to change GDISYS to
GDISYS2's IP address I now have to create another dns entry called WTF
that I also have to flop back and forth between these two ip
addresses?
And all "regular" users continue to use GDISYS but any developers who
use
TL Ashford connecting to GDISYS have to set all their 5250, etc to
connect
to WTF?

Rob, how come you can't have a behind the scenes dns entry for when
you
switch over that he could then use.

We are having an issue connecting from a PC to configure TL Ashford.
It's
pretty much mandatory to have a host table entry on the PC to
connect
to
the system. It doesn't matter if you already have a working dns
entry
to
the system which works fine for your 5250, odbc, etc. The problem
with
this is, when we switch over to our backup system the developer
cannot
connect to 5250 or anything else because of this host table entry
still
pointing to the IP address of the down system.

A workaround might be having TL Ashford connect to AshfordBullshirt
and
putting in a host table entry for that. Then the only problem would
be
TL
Ashford development not working during a switch. His 5250 and
everything
else would be fine.

<rant>
I hate host table entries!

The developer says I had a workaround for his old PC but I can't
remember
what it was.
