I’d like to have two openfire servers running at the same time (Openfire 3.6.4 on Ubuntu 9). If the primary goes down, then users will reconnect to the secondary (passive) server. I understand that without clustering, this would cause a brief outage as clients reconnect.
How do the Openfire databases stay sync’d with eachother (buddy lists, etc). I’m using mysql for that. Is this a feature that Openfire just does “automatically”?
What is a recommended way to have clients directed to the secondary server (different IP) when the primary is unavailable?
