The failover.conf file implements Failover Manager configuration. The file is located in the BASEDIR/smarts/conf/failover directory.
Add entries for your deployment to the failover.conf file before starting the Failover Manager. Also, the sm_configureFailover.pl script uses the entries from this file to create subscriptions for Service Assurance Manager, Adapter Platform, and BIM.
If you modify the failover.conf file while the Failover Manager is already running, you must reload it in the Failover Manager. “Initiate Failover Manager reload” on page 57 describes how to reload the Failover Manager.
The failover.conf file contains these sections:
Root and non-root user sections (Linux)
To configure the Failover Manager for your failover solution:
From the installation directory of Failover Manager (BASEDIR/smarts/bin), open the failover.conf file. Type:
