Standby SwyxServer Installation of a MasterSwyxServer Standby parameters for the MasterSwyxServer
Standby parameters for the MasterSwyxServer
After the installation and full configuration of the standby SwyxServer, you can carry out the configuration of the master system.
The standby system should already be running at this time, so that all replication mechanisms can be directly applied.
This is how you configure the standby properties of a masterSwyxServer
1 You have to run the standby configuration for a SwyxServer using a windows account which has administrative rights on both systems.
2 SQL Server Agent Account:
Specify here the Windows domain user account under which the SQL Server Agent is started, along with the associated password.
You can use "Browse Users ..." to select a user from the domain.
Please note that the same user account is used as is also used in the standby system for the SQL Server Agent (see step (2), Account for SQL Server Agent:).
3 Snapshot Folder:
The replication mechanism for the database requires a directory for database mapping. A database map of the master system is initially created (in this directory) and then copied over the database of the standby system. During operation, the two databases are constantly bidirectionally matched.
Select an existing directory here, or let the Configuration Wizard create a new directory.
4 Database instance of the standby system
Enter here the database instance of the standby server; for an unnamed instance "" and for a named instance "<standby-host-name>\<instance-name>".
5 Overview
Before the configuration, a summary of the configuration parameters is displayed. Please check this. If you would like to make further changes, click on "Back" and make the changes.
6 Configuration:
The database replication is now configured. When the process is complete, click on "Next>".
The Configuration Wizard indicates whether the configuration of the replication was successful.
7 Click "Finish".
This completes the installation of the standby scenario. Both systems are now running, and the passive system's database is continually updated from the active system.
Please do not interrupt the initial synchronization of the database during the following hour. During this specific time period do not switch the servers. The configuration and user database on the secondary system is not yet complete. The synchronization of the databases during the normal operation after this initial synchronization is not affected.
Please note that the connection between the master system and the standby system may not be interrupted for longer than four weeks (28 days). Otherwise all licenses for the standby system are lost.
