Master-Backup Redundancy

Hi All,

 

Can I configure a Master controller and 2 Backup Master controllers?

 

The Idea is:

 

- if the Master fail, the 1st Backup Master become Master.

- If the Master fail and the 1st Backup Master fail, the 2sd Backup Master become Master.

 

I read something about Cluster of Master Controllers, but I`m not sure if it will works that way. 

 

Thanks,

 

Ed

Re: Master-Backup Redundancy

Are you trying to achieve AP redundancy?  I would recommend AP fast failover for that.

 

For Master redundancy, you are limited to 2 controllers.

Re: Master-Backup Redundancy

You won't be able to achieve this using the master-redundancy method.

 

But you accomplish this using the HA setup but HA is only supported on AOS 6.3 and up

Re: Master-Backup Redundancy

Keep in my mind that .3 won't be able to see the local db sync since this only happen between controllers in the master-redundancy setup
