UFM HA supports High-Availability on the host level for UFM Enterprise appliances. The solution is based on a pacemaker to monitor services, and on DRBD to sync file-system states.
UFM HA should be configured on two appliances, master and standby via the configure_ha_nodes.sh tool. For detailed information on configuring UFM HA from the master (AKA main) appliance, refer to Installing UFM Server Software for High Availability. Since the UFM HA package and related components (i.e. pacemaker and DRBD) are already deployed, follow instructions from step 6 (Configure HA from the main server) and onward.
To manage the HA cluster, use the ufm_ha_cluster tool.
