Installation → Installing Servers and Agents → Installing for a High Availability Implementation → High Availability Configurations → Configuring Agents for High Availability (Alternate)
Another approach for maintaining high availability is to connect agents to a series of endpoints. However enterprise-level scalability is not supported with this approach and it is difficult to maintain with a full list of all servers. Use this approach with caution. The preferred approach for high availability in enterprise environments is Configuring Agents for High Availability (Recommended).
The following steps describe how to connect agents to a series of server endpoints with which, in the case of a server failure, the agents will attempt to communicate.
For the purpose of this example, the following procedure assumes a two-node cluster. Two example cluster nodes have the following IP addresses: ip_node_1 and ip_node_2 (or you can use DNS names).
To configure agents to connect to a series of endpoints:
Assuming that during installation, an agent was set to communicate with the server at ip_node_1, to enable the agent to also communicate with the server on the cluster node ip_node_2, you should configure the two servers with a network relay as follows:
