Last Update: 2016-04-25 13:53:05 UTC


This document details how to create a CA ARCserve RHA High Availability Scenario for the Control Service.

Important! Before you create HA scenario for the Control Service, you should verify that you have two Control Services installed, one as the (active) Master Control Service and one as the (standby) Replica Control Service. The Replica Control Service should be down. In addition, an Engine should be installed and running on both the Master and Replica hosts.

To create a High Availability scenario for the Control Service

1. Open the CA ARCserve RHA Manager. Then, select from the Scenario menu the New option, or click the New button on the Standard  toolbar.

The Scenario Creation Wizard opens.

2. Select the required scenario options, as follows:

Select the Create a New Scenario option button.

From the Group drop-down list, select the group to which you want to assign the new scenario, or enter a name for a new scenario group.

3. Click Next. The Select Server and Product Type page opens.

A list of available applications and scenario types is presented.
Note: The list of available applications depends on the licenses applied.
Select the required scenario options, as follows:

From the Select Server Type list, select CA ARCserve RHA Control Service.

From the Select Product Type options, select High Availability Scenario (HA).

Note that Integrity Testing for Assured Recovery is not supported for Control Service HA scenarios.

4. Click Next. The Master and Replica Hosts page opens.

5. Enter the following information:



The Verify CA ARCserve RHA Engine on Hosts check box - select this check box if you want the system to verify whether Engines are installed and running on the Master and Replica hosts you specified in this page. If Engines are not installed on the selected hosts, you can use this option to remotely install the Engines on one or both hosts. For more information about the Host Verification page,

6. After you selected the desired options, click Next.

7. The Scenario Properties page opens.

The Scenario Properties page enables you to configure the scenario properties that affect the entire scenario. Typically, the default  values are sufficient.

8. Click Next. The Master and Replica Properties page opens.

9. Once you are satisfied with the Master and Replica properties, click Next.

10. Once the verification is completed the Scenario Verification page opens.

The Verification Results dialog provides you with detailed information about the checks performed to help diagnose problems. It is intended to help you resolve any issues encountered in running the software. You can also contact Technical Support for further assistance.

11. The scenario configuration is now completed and you are prompted to run it. Running the scenario starts the data synchronization process, following by replication and is alive checks.

To finish the scenario creation and run it later, select Finish.

To run the scenario, click Run Now.
