This article describes how to install Orion Failover Engine in your machine.


  • All version of FOE


You need to consider your environment, and determine the type of installation you will be doing. FoE will work for three scenarios:

  • P2P – Both the primary and secondary servers are Physical servers (P2P = Physical to Physical failover)
  • P2V – The primary server is a physical server, and secondary server will be a virtual server
  • V2V – Both servers will be virtual servers.

Note: Please carefully read the hardware requirements for both servers for these scenarios.


FoE can be deployed in a LAN or WAN scenario.

Once you have determined what you require, please see the following installation guide which will guide you through the installation of Orion FoE on your Primary and Secondary servers.
