The examples in this section show how MySQL database instances can be configured. Each diagram shows the relationship between the type of configuration and the MySQL parameters. Each configuration also adheres to the configuration rules and requirements described in this documentation that ensure compatibility between the MySQL configuration and the LifeKeeper software.

This section describes the configuration requirements and then provides these configuration examples:

  • Active/Standby
  • Active/Active

The examples in this section are only a sample of the configurations you can establish, but understanding these configurations and adhering to the configuration rules will help you define and set up workable solutions for your computing environment.
