In case of an extended data center failure, the secondary data center can be promoted to primary.

About this task

For a SQL Server Always On deployment, no changes are required. For other database configurations, you need to edit the runtime-config.properties file in the VMware Identity Manager appliances in the secondary data center to configure the appliances for read-write mode.

Make these changes in each VMware Identity Manager appliance in the secondary data center.

Procedure

  1. Using a ssh client, log in to the VMware Identity Manager appliance as the root user.
  2. Open the /usr/local/horizon/conf/runtime-config.properties file for editing.
  3. Change the read.only.service=true line to read.only.service=false.
  4. Save the runtime-config.properties file.
  5. Restart the Tomcat server on the appliance.
