This section describes the general procedure to set up the environment shown in the figure below.
- Create an environment that satisfies the AWS VPC Peering Connections Requirements.
- Install LifeKeeper on each instance and create a communication path between node 1 and node 2.
Creating an IP Resource
- Create a Virtual IP resource on node 1 and extend it to node 2. The IP resource address must be outside of the CIDR block managed by VPC A.
Creating an EC2 Resource
Create an EC2 resource on node 1 and extend it to node 2. For the IP resource requested when creating a resource, specify the resource created in “Creating an IP Resource”. Specify “Route Table (Backend Cluster)” for the EC2 resource type when creating the resource.
Creating Resources for Protected Services
Create a resource for the service or application you want to protect. If an IP resource is required when creating a resource, specify the resource created in “Creating an IP Resource”. If necessary, configure resource dependencies so that the service/application is the parent resource and the EC2 resource is the child resource.
