If you are running the Failover Manager from your Standby SAM installation, and you customize any files in the following directories for use by Failover Manager, the changes should be present on both the Active and Standby SAM hosts. The affected directories are local/actions, local/model, local/rules, and local/script.

Before you start the Failover Manager, copy the ic-failover-server script described in “Configure the ic-failover-server script” on page 57 and any other customized Failover Manager files to the corresponding directories in the Active and Standby locations.

Placing copies of Failover Manager files in both Active and Standby locations ensures that the Standby files will not be overwritten when Failover Manager synchronizes files.
