Disaster recovery: Active/Passive configuration

Note:
  • Some Automation Suite products are not supported in Disaster Recovery- Active/Passive. You can install these products while installing the primary cluster only.
  • Once you have provided all the parameters to the installer related to your setup, Installer will prompt you to continue or quit. You must quit the installer to modify the generated cluster_config.json with the advanced multi-site parameters.

You must install the two Automation Suite clusters separately.

The following table lists the cluster_config.json parameters you must use to install both the primary and secondary clusters:

Parameter

Description

fabric.redis.ha

It indicates that HAA is enabled. This is required to allow for Redis in HA mode. It is mandatory and must be set to true.

fabric.redis.license

It indicates the Redis (HAA) license. It a mandatory value and must be a valid base64-encoded string.

cluster_fqdn

It indicates the FQDN of the load balancer of the cluster. It is a mandatory value.

multisite.enabled

It indicates that Automation Suite must be configured to work multi-site. It must be set to true.

multisite.primary

It indicates that this cluster is a primary cluster and must be set to true. It defaults to false to denote the secondary cluster.

multisite.other_kube_config

It indicates the base64-encoded kubeconfig file of another cluster. While installing the primary Automation Suite cluster, this value is unavailable and can be left as is. However, you must provide the value when rebuilding the primary automation suite later during recovery.

fixed_rke_address

It indicates the address where all the node joining requests must be made. This is usually the same as the cluster_fqdn value (the FQDN of the load balancer)
