Issue/Introduction

When we use selang with the command "so dh+(DH1,DH2,DH3,DH4) , but dh4 takes the second position instead of 4th position. the result in selang of " so list " is

DH1

DH4

DH3

DH2

 

Cause

The addition of distribution hosts are not defined as expected. Due to the method of indexing in the seos database as each additional node is added to the list of distribution hosts it will add each additional node as the second node forcing each node to move down the list by 1. so node 2 becomes node 3 and node 3 becomes node 4. 

Environment

Release : 14.1

Component : PAM SERVER CONTROL ENDPOINT WINDOWS

Resolution

While the behavior may not be obvious you can control the load order policy fetcher will follow by entering your additional DH hosts in reverse order as demonstrated below. The order in which it is displayed with the "so list" command is the load order policy fetcher will follow.

 

AC> so DH+(DH4,DH3,DH2)
