Creating a Resource Hierarchy

To create an LB Health Check resource, complete the following steps:

  1. Start the Create Resource Wizard as described in Creating Resource Hierarchies.
  2. Select Backup Server.
  3. Select LB Health Check as a Recovery Kit.

  1. Enter the following parameters.
Field Tips
Reply daemon Port Specify the port number that listens for connections from the load balancer.
Reply daemon Message Specifies the reply string from the daemon (optional).
LB Health Check Resource Tag Enter a unique tag name for the LB Health Check resource you are creating. The default tag name, lbhc-<port>, will automatically be populated in this field. <port> is the specified Reply daemon port.

  1. Entering all parameters will start a daemon that listens for health check probes at the specified Port number to bring the LB Health Check resource ISP (In-Service, Protected). When LifeKeeper detects a problem, an error will appear in the information box or log file.

When the resource is created successfully, the Pre-Extend configuration task is started.
