Fail over with HP SIM 7.3 - Watch dog service?

Hi,

 

I have installed a CMS servers and accompanying DB server at one data center and another CMS server and DB at a secondary data center.

 

They both have fresh, unconfigured installs of HP SIM on each CMS server. The servers are not clustered at all.

 

I want to know, how do I set up failover between the servers at each data center, does 7.3 include the watch dog service capability? what are my options here and how is it done?

 

Thanks,

Mitch

You can view the following white paper on how to configure this

What this fails over is really just the event handler. This will prevent duplicate emails/actions when a event of interest occurs

 

All devices will  need to be discovered in both servers.
