Issue/Introduction

If I do not have access to the Desktop Client, is there another way to find out which DE server is acting as PRIMARY server and which is the STANDBY server?

Environment

Release : 12.x

Component : CA WORKLOAD AUTOMATION DE (DSERIES)

Resolution

You can use the stand-alone CLI utility to connect to the server.
When connected it will give indicate you that it is the PRIMARY or otherwise it will mention that it can't connect and need to connect to other machine.

Example:

[email protected]<hostname> # cd <install_dir>/bin
[email protected]<hostname> bin]# ./cli
> connect HOST("<hostname>") PORT(7500) USER("ADMIN") PASSWORD("xxxxx")
Connected
[email protected]<hostname>:7500(PRIMARY)>

When you execute the same commands on your standby server, you will get following message:

Example:

[email protected]<hostname> # cd <install_dir>/bin
[email protected]<hostname> bin]# ./cli
> connect HOST("<hostname>") PORT(7500) USER("ADMIN") PASSWORD("xxxxx")
Failover is enabled, connected server <hostname>:7500 is not the right one, we need to connect to primary
