Introduction

This guide explains the transitional solution of how to create a failover scenario for the Silent Brick Archive.

This is a transitional solution only until the build-in automatic failover is introduced in the next software release.

  1. Add an A name record for both Silent Brick Systems
    • Add an A name record for both Silent Brick Systems

    • Create a CNAME entry pointing to the primary Silent Brick System ( here SB-01 )

  2. If the primary Silent Brick System is unreachable the software can not access the share
    • If the primary Silent Brick System is unreachable the software can not access the share

    • The path has to be switched so the software accesses the secondary Silent Brick system

  3. Only nescassary if the Archive / Volume / Share configuration has changed on the source side. Open the UI of your secondary Silent Brick System
    • Only nescassary if the Archive / Volume / Share configuration has changed on the source side.

    • Open the UI of your secondary Silent Brick System

    • Set the archive offline

    • Set the archive online again

    • This procedure will be automatically executed in the coming software release

  4. Switch the DNS CNAME to the second Silent Brick System ( here SB-02 )
    • Switch the DNS CNAME to the second Silent Brick System ( here SB-02 )

    • Access to SB-VIRT will now be redirected to the secondary Silent Brick System

    • The software can access its data again
