A little more background:
GDIHQ1 is one lpar with both ERP and Domino
GDIHQ2 is the Mimix replica lpar for the ERP and MAILTWO is a different
lpar for GDDATA2 (and the rest of the "2" cluster replicas).

If we go the coding route and a scheduled agent runs to gather data from
ERP we traditionally say "run on server" and select the primary (or "1")
server only. So it would run on GDDATA and not GDDATA2. We do this so
that the agent doesn't run twice; on GDDATA and on GDDATA2. I realize
that if GDDATA is down and we're running on GDDATA2 that leaves a hole.
Just trying to figure out how to work around that hole.

One option that is coming to mind. Why not spin off the "1" servers off
of GDIHQ1 and put them on to their own lpar, let's say MAIL1? This would
be more consistant with our MAILTWO and our MAIL3 lpars.
The WRKRDBDIRE scheme would look like:

GDIHQ1
Name Alias Remote Location Remote Type
GDIHQ n/a *LOCAL *IP
GDIHQ GDIHQ2 GDIHQ2 *IP

GDIHQ2
Name Alias Remote Location Remote Type
GDIHQ n/a *LOCAL *IP
GDIHQ GDIHQ1 GDIHQ1 *IP

MAIL1
Name Alias Remote Location Remote Type
MAIL1 n/a *LOCAL *IP
GDIHQ n/a GDIHQ *IP

MAILTWO
Name Alias Remote Location Remote Type
MAILTWO n/a *LOCAL *IP
GDIHQ n/a GDIHQ *IP

MAIL3
Name Alias Remote Location Remote Type
MAIL3 n/a *LOCAL *IP
GDIHQ n/a GDIHQ *IP

I think this would significantly ease the connectivity. If GDDATA domino
server, running on MAIL1 tries to connect to GDIHQ and our DNS says that
GDIHQ's IP address is either the IP address for GDIHQ1 or GDIHQ2 it could
all be handled with that, right?

We still have that concern about not running an agent multiple times by
using the "run on server" but when it does kick in, it should go to the
right DB server.
