RCPD is not started via the RCPD.idb in Spectrum


Article ID: 227744


Updated On:


CA Spectrum


SpectroServer alerted that the OLB could not be written, because the RCPD service was not running on the secondary server.

Why is this not controlled via the RCPD.idb? Auto restart is set to no.



RCPD is only started on demand.


Release : 21.2

Component :


The RCPD process is only meant to start in the receive mode on the secondary for the online backup sync process. 
It is not meant to be running at all times.
The start parameters are passed from processd on the Primary and not taken from the RPCD.idb file. 
The idb file does not need to be edited for fault tolerant secondaries to configure this.
