Mirror RP3440

Is there a way to Mirror two RP3440 Servers?  I want them to be identical.  This way if one fails I can quickly get back up and running.

If the hardware of the 2 servers are same, you can install the OS and app software on one server, then backup the system by tape(for example: make_tape_recovery) and recover it to another server, then all of the software and hardware and config are same, It will be worked.

Hi ,

If you are using 11iV3 , create a dynamic root disk  using drd clone command in Server1. Then replace HDD on server2 with this cloned disk (Basicaly hardware swaping ). Boot the second server using  newly placed DD.

The two servers can be made identical by using an Ignite backup. The Ignite image can be restored to the second server even if the I/O, memory and CPU count are different. You can keep the servers in sync by using rsync, but be sure to exclude server-specific directories and files, specifically: /dev, /etc/lvmconf, /etc/lvmtab
