It may be necessary to convert a Secondary Fault Tolerant server into a Primary SpectroSERVER server.
The first step is to change the precedence of the secondary servers to 10. If this is a DSS environment we will need to perform the same for all other secondary servers too.
As an example we will use the following:
S1 - Primary SpectroSERVER and Main Location Server (MLS)
S2 - Secondary SpectroSERVER for S1
S3 - Primary DSS SpectroSERVER
S4 - Secondary SpectroSERVER for S3
OC1 - OneClick Server
Change the precedence of S2 and S4 to 10 by following these steps:
Repeat step 1 above for S3 and S4 as well. Change the precedence of S3 to 30 and S4 to 10.
In the OC1 console:
As S1 and S3 no longer exist, remove these servers from landscape map of S2 and S4 using the MapUpdate command:
From the <$SPECROOT>/SS-Tools directory on S2 and S4 run:
MapUpdate -remove <LANDSCAPE_HANDLE of S1/ LANDSCAPE_HANDLE of S3> -precedence 30
On S4 open the Spectrum control panel. On the Location Server tab configure the location server as S2.
Make sure the .hostrc files on S2 and S4 have the correct hostnames of S2, S4 and OC1.
For more information about .hostrc files see page 50 of the Distributed SpectroSERVER Administrator Guide.
Now restart the Spectrum processes on OC1, S2 and S4. Open OC1 to view both the landscapes S2 and S4.
