Can you promote a RSA Authentication Manager 8.1.x replica to primary if the original primary is offline?
Yes you can, but if you promote a replica while primary is offline, you need to write
off the original primary, as these will never replicate again.
there are two promotion scenarios
all machines up and running, and you want to change where the primary is running and turn old primary into replica
primary is dead, or not coming back, and you pick a replica to become the new primary. Afterward...the old primary, if it does come back at some point,
is cut off from working with the rest of the servers ever again. it would need to be reinstalled as a new replica if you want it to be in use
Please review the section on "Replica Instance Promotion for Disaster Recovery," starting on page 307 of the RSA Authentication Manager 8.2 Administrator's Guide.
Thanks for the quick response the information was very helpful.
