Re: How to setup DNS to swing Pri and Sec ePO?

Jump to solution

When epo is clustered, you have to use the virtual cluster name and IP for clients to connect to, not any individual primary or secondary node names/ip's.  That way if the cluster fails over to one of the other nodes, the connection is not lost, as the connection is made to the cluster itself that controls which node is active and receiving the traffic.

I’ve done the mcafee epo cluster server. It does worked as you mentioned. But, how do I make SQL as clustered. Test Scenario: When DBA fails, DBB is active and EPOA work as per normal. Currently I already did full backup & transaction log for DBA. So, I restore it to DBB. Literally DBA & DBB has the same databases. How do I accomplish the SQL Failover Cluster?

You set up the sql cluster the same way you did epo and use the virtual ip/hostname of the sql cluster for epo to connect to instead of any individual node.

I've set up the sql cluster the same way as I did for ePO and use the virtual sql ip/hostname of the sql cluster for ePO to connect to instead of any individual node.

SQL Cluster Validation:

  1. Shutdown Pri DB (DBA). Sec DB (DBB) taking over
  2. Launch ePO console from Pri ePO (ePOA).
  3. Failed to launch ePO console

I try to figure out the issue and found a solution by modifying Pri DB (DBA) IP to Virtual SQL IP.

  1. Open Internet Explorer.
  2. Open the Configure Database Settings page. Go to https://<servername>:8443/core/config
  3. Under Configure Database Settings
  4. Modify the Host name or IP address to Virtual SQL IP
  5. Click Test Connection. Verifies that the connection to the database is successful with the new settings
  6. Click Apply
  7. Restart the ePolicy Orchestrator Application Server service:
    1. Press Windows+R, type services.msc, and click OK.
    2. Right-click the following services and select Restart:
       
      McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator x.x.x Application Server
      McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator x.x.x Server
      McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator x.x.x Event Parser
  8. Verify the ePO console loads

Did the SQL Cluster Validation steps again. It works like a charm! Thank you! 😄
