Enable Automatic Manager Service Failover in vRA7.5


Enable Automatic Manager Service Failover in vRA7.5



Automatic Manager Service failover is disabled by default if you install or upgrade the Manager Service with the standard vRealize Automation Windows installer.
To enable automatic Manager Service failover after running the standard Windows installer, take the following steps. 

Procedure
  1. Log in as root to a console session on the vRealize Automation appliance. 
  2. Navigate to the following directory. 
/usr/lib/vcac/tools/vami/commands
  1. Enter the following command.
python ./manager-service-automatic-failover ENABLE 

Results
If you need to disable automatic failover throughout an IaaS deployment, enter the following command instead. 

python ./manager-service-automatic-failover DISABLE
