To set up disaster recovery in the VCO:

  1. Install a new VCO whose version matches the version of the VCO that is currently the Active VCO.
  2. Set the following properties on the Active and Standby VCO, if necessary.
    • vco.disasterRecovery.transientErrorToleranceSecs to a non-zero value (Defaults to 900 seconds in version 3.3, zero in earlier versions). This prevents any transient errors from resulting in a Edge/Gatewaymanagement plane update.
    • vco.disasterRecovery.mysqlExpireLogsDays (Defaults to 1 day). This is the amount of time the Active VCO keeps the mysql binlog data.
  3. Set up the network.public.address property on the Active and Standby to the address contacted by the Edges (Heartbeats).
  4. Set up DR by following the usual DR Setup procedure that is described in VeloCloud Orchestrator Disaster Recovery.
