Use the High Availability Deployment Summary page to view and manage your pools and to view the pool member type.
During an upgrade or maintenance procedures on your HA pool members, you must disable your pool. HA pools can also be disabled when you no longer have sufficient HA pool licenses for the number of enabled pools.
You can also disable the entire feature on the High Availability Settings page.
You may need to delete an HA pool to free an HA pool license or to change pool members.
When you remove a pool, the VIP is still reserved in the database and is not recycled so you can re-establish the pool without modifying your network or device settings.
A failover audit event is logged when you remove a pool.
When testing SolarWinds High Availability and network configuration changes or when upgrading, you can failover to the standby pool member manually.
Failover can only occur when both pool members are up, the pool is enabled, and High Availability is enabled.
The pool fails over to the secondary server and a failover audit event is logged that records who forced the failover and when it occurred.
In addition to polling metrics, individual pool members list a Server Type and an HA Run Type. Select a pool member to view the pool member type and other polling information.
