|Is it necessary to have the original primary to be online and functional during the process of replica promotion?||Yes, It is mandatory to have the original primary instance online and fully functional during the process of replica promotion.|
|Who can initiate the process for replica promotion for maintenance? ||An Operations Console administrator can initiate promotion for maintenance from the Operations Console of the replica instance that is to be promoted. |
Logon to the Operations Console of the replica instance to be promoted as primary and perform the following steps
- In the Operations Console, navigate to Deployment Configuration > Replica Promotion > For Maintenance > Promote to Primary.
- Verify the instance details and click Run Pre-Promotion Check.
- The progress monitor displays the progress of the promotion operation on the replica instance that is being promoted.
|Will the original primary instance automatically be demoted to be the replica instance during the process of replica promotion for maintenance?||After promotion, the original primary instance is demoted to a replica instance.|
|Is it necessary to have all the replica instances online and functioning during the replica promotion process for maintenance?||It is important to take note that during the promotion for maintenance, the primary instance and all replica instances must be online and functioning. |
|What are the services and instances that are affected during the promotion process for maintenance? ||During the promotion process, authentication, administration, and self-service will be unavailable on the primary and replica instance involved in promotion.|
|Will the other replicas be available for authentications during the process of replica promotion for maintenance?||Authentications remains available on additional replicas in the deployment apart from the replica which is identified for promotion.|
|Will the old primary be automatically re-attached as the replica to the new primary (that is, the newly promoted replica)?||After promotion, the original primary instance is demoted to a replica instance and is automatically synchronized with the new primary instance.|
All additional replica instances are automatically connected to the new primary instance.
|What are the impacts on the Webtier during the process of replica promotion for maintenance?||If the deployment includes a Webtier, restart the services for each Webtier after promotion. |
|What are the impacts on the RSA RADIUS server during the process of replica promotion for maintenance?||It is mandatory to initiate RADIUS data replication to synchronize the RADIUS server on each replica instance with the RADIUS server on the new primary instance.|
Logon to the Security Console of the new primary instance and perform the following steps to initiate RADIUS data replication:
- In the Security Console, click RADIUS > RADIUS Servers.
- Click Initiate Replication.
