In an Active/Standby configuration, the backup server is not actively running the Sybase ASE but stands by in case the primary server experiences a failure. The following scenarios provide specific requirements that must be adhered to when protecting a Sybase ASE resource instance in active/standby configurations.

Scenario 1

The Sybase ASE product is installed locally on all servers in the cluster.

  • All Sybase Adaptive Server, Monitor Server and Backup Server devices are configured on shared storage.
  • The Sybase Adaptive Server, Monitor Server and Backup Server configuration files are stored on a shared file system.
  • The Sybase Adaptive Server and Monitor Server shared memory directory is located on a shared file system.
  • The interfaces file must be manually updated on all servers to contain common entries for each instance to be protected.
  • All interfaces file entries must be resolvable by all servers where the resource will be protected.
  • The RUN files for each Adaptive Server, Monitor Server and Backup Server must exist on all servers in the cluster.
  • The RUN files for each Adaptive Server, Monitor Server and Backup Server must be executable on all servers in the cluster.
  • The RUN files for each Adaptive Server, Monitor Server and Backup Server must contain the same options on all servers in the cluster.

Scenario 2

The Sybase ASE product is installed to one or more shared file systems on the primary server.

  • All Sybase Adaptive Server, Monitor Server and Backup Server devices are configured on shared storage.
  • The Sybase Adaptive Server, Monitor Server and Backup Server configuration files are stored on a shared file system.
  • The Sybase Adaptive Server and Monitor Server shared memory directory is located on a shared file system.
  • The interfaces file does not have to be updated on the target servers.
  • All interfaces file entries must be resolvable by all servers where the resource will be protected.
  • On the SPS backup server, /etc/ld.so.conf must be updated to add entries for the Sybase product libraries.
    º Add an entry for $SYBASE/ASE/lib
    º Add an entry for $SYBASE/OCS/lib
    º Mount the shared file system containing the Sybase ASE installed products and run ldconfig
