Authenticating Additional Servers (DSA)

Multiple servers can provide a higher level of service for your BigFix installation.

If you choose to add Disaster Server Architecture (DSA) to your installation, you will be able to recover from network and systems failures automatically while continuing to provide local service. To take advantage of this function, you must have one or more additional servers with a capability at least equal to your primary server. Because of the extra expense and installation involved, you should carefully think through your needs before committing to using DSA.

Your servers can communicate with each other using the DB2 inter-server authentication option.

Before installing the additional Linux Servers, install the DB2 server on each machine that you want to add to your deployment. The version of the DB2 server must be the same as the DB2 server installed on the Master Server.
