1.6 Testing the Failover of the Orchestration Server in a High Availability Grid

You can optionally simulate a failure of the Orchestration Server by powering off or performing a shutdown of the server. After approximately 30 seconds, the clustering software detects that the primary node is no longer functioning, binds the IP address to the failover server, then starts the failover server in the cluster.

Access the Orchestration Administrator Information Page to verify that the Orchestration Server is installed and running (stopped or started). Use the following URL to open the page in a Web browser:


The Administrator Information page includes links to separate installation programs (installers) for the Orchestration Agent and the Orchestration Clients. The installers are used for various operating systems.
