I am currently attempting to test deploying a multiple management server configuration in our test environment. My understanding is that this configuration would allow for us to deploy multiple 'lower level' management servers, with a single 'master' management server that would then aggregate the monitored device data from those 'lower level' management servers into a single pane view.
In my intial testing, I setup a single monitoring server, single 'lower level' management server and 'master' management server. I have a MANAGED-NODES entry for the monitoring server in the Network config on the 'lower level' management server. The monitored devices and data are visible fine on the 'lower level' management server. On the 'master' management server, I then added a MANAGED-NODES entry for the 'lower level' management node to the Network config. While I do see the connection from the 'master' to the 'lower level' management server showing in both the Web and Windows client, none of the monitored devices or data is visible.
Not sure if I am missing a configuration step or possibly misinterpreting the function of the 'master' management server as being able to aggregate monitoring data across multiple 'lower level' management servers.
Hi @Timon_Dennis ,
The configuration you have in place is correct. It appears the master management server does have this issue. Could you please log a support case with the irfax from lower and master management servers for our investigation?
Thank for confirming that configuration should work as I expected. I will engage support to see if they can assist in identifgying why it is failing.
Does Progonosis support an active/active management server configuration whereas you have two management servers behind a load balancer and end user traffic is then split between the two? This would obiviously require that both management servers have simultaneous active connections to the same monitoring servers. I wasn't sure if multiple active management servers connections to a single monitoring server could causes a big hit a resource utilization for both the application and sever on that monitoring server. Just another configuration option I am mulling over as we continue to expand our Prognosis footprint and user base.
