In a Service Desk Manager (SDM) Advanced Availability (AA) environment, when a failover occurs, searching for knowledge does not work.


Service Desk Manager 17.x

Advanced Availability (AA) architecture

All Supported Operating Systems


In an Advanced Availability (AA) configuration, the following singleton processes that are associated with the Knowledge component run on the Background server:

  • Knowledge Management Search Daemon (bpebr_nxd)
    Knowledge Management/Keyword Indexing Daemon (bpeid_nxd)
    Knowledge Management FAQ Ratings Daemon (bu_daemon)
    Knowledge Report Card Daemon (krc_daemon)

As a result, when a failover is performed, in order for the knowledge searches to work again, it is necessary to run the "pdm_k_reindex" command on the new BG server.
