High-availability clusters with Enterprise Replication configuration example

Suppose you require Enterprise Replication between two high-availability server clusters configured as follows:

Cluster 1:
  • Primary server
  • HDR secondary server
  • SD secondary server 1
  • SD secondary server 2
  • RS secondary server 1
  • RS secondary server 2
Cluster 2:
  • Primary server
  • HDR secondary server
  • SD secondary server 1
  • SD secondary server 2
  • RS secondary server 1
  • RS secondary server 2
Suppose further that each of the servers is named according to the following convention:
  • First three characters: name of enterprise
  • Character 4: host short number
  • Characters 5, 6, and 7: cluster number
  • Characters 8, 9, and 10: server type: "pri" for primary server, "sec" for secondary server
  • Characters 11, 12, and 13: connection type: "shm" or "tcp"
For example, a server with the name: srv4_1_pri_shm is described as follows:
  • srv = name of enterprise
  • 4 = host short number
  • _1_ = cluster number
  • pri = this is a primary server
  • shm = connection type uses shared memory communication
The following entries in the sqlhosts file would support the previous configuration:
srv4_1_pri_shm onipcshm sun-mach4 srv4_1_pri_shm
srv4_1_sec_shm onipcshm sun-mach4 srv4_1_sec_shm
srv5_1_rss_shm onipcshm sun-mach5 srv5_1_rss_shm
