Is Laserfiche only supported in an HA environment in an active/passive mode? I have been reading through the documentation and it appears so, but I have a RIO customer that wants verification.
Laserfiche High Availability
John - Was your client able to establish an acceptable Laserfiche fail-over configuration?
So to clarify for our customer, HA is not supported in an active/active mode? That was their goal but it appears Laserfiche is not supported in that mode. I had read where the LF server is cluster unaware and support was in an active/passive mode. And can you explain how License Manager and its activation comes into play in a failover environment? I have read the documentation but that seems unclear.
Yes, that is correct that Laserfiche does not support High Availability in Active/Active mode. I know that this has been requested in the past, so I'll make sure to inform the developers that you've made this request as well.
I'm not quite sure on exactly what you mean about how License manager "comes into play" in a failover environment, but I spoke with some Laserfiche staff who told me that in some cases, customers have purchased two separate instances of License Manager and have one set up in each environment. This is definitely not a requirement, but in lieu of putting in additional work when you need the failover environment to come live, having the License Manager already set up can expedite the process.
