Simplified procedure for switching a domain manager

Use one of these procedures when you have a short-term loss of a domain manager.
Using the command line
See switchmgr.
Using the Dynamic Workload Console
  1. In the navigation bar at the top, click Monitoring and Reporting > Workload Monitoring > Monitor Workload.
  2. Select an engine.
  3. In Object Type, select Workstation.
  4. From the Query drop-down list, select a query to monitor workstations.
  5. Click Run to run the monitoring task.
  6. From the table containing the list of workstations, select a workstation and click More Actions > Become Master Domain Manager.

Domain managers remain switched until you perform another switch manager operation, or run JnextPlan. To return to the original domain manager without running JnextPlan, repeat this procedure.

Here is the procedure to follow every time you switch the master domain manager or dynamic domain manager if you run dynamic scheduling in your network:
  1. Set the job fence to go priority level. For further details, see fence.
  2. Switch the master domain manager or dynamic domain manager to a backup workstation. Use either the conman switchmgr command or the Dynamic Workload Console. For more information about both methods, see switchmgr.
  3. Once the switch has been performed, restore the job fence to zero. For further details, see fence.
