2 OVSD 5.0 SP1 Mgmt Servers do not see each other, and fail-over don't work
My customer has 2 OVSD Management Servers connecting the same network segment. Both Servers are running OVSD 5.0 SP1. The Primary Server (xxx.xxx.xxx.101) has been installed with "default insatllation" option, while the Secondary Server (xxx.xxx.xxx.102) has been installed with "Secondary server (without Certificate Server)" option.
Customer wants to deploy load-balancing and fail-over funtions between these 2 servers.
The OVSD services are running and all certifcates are running at both Servers. When I launch the Object Server Monitor dialog window, both servers do not see each other under connections tab. The failure-over function does not work either.
But I can launch the OVSD GUI Console and connect to the CMDB from the Secondary Server.
Does anyone come accross this issue? Should I use "default installation/Secondary server" or "Secondary server (without Certificate Server)" option when I insatlled the OVSD SP1 Server components on the 2nd Server?

go to the Edit Server Settings and in the General tab select the box for Join Multiple Servers - this will "load balance" the 2 servers in that if one application server is not available the other should be to accept console requests. Make sure the both are are accessing the same database.
