inotes cluster failover

Achieving high availability for HCL iNotes requires the use of a software load balancer or a hardware ADC in conjunction with Domino clustering.

It will be ideal if there is a settings from the Domino end to manage inotes failover

    Creating a dummy URL on Domino to redirect incomming requeats? How would that work if Domino is down? There is no http404 response when the http task is down. so that wont work, sorry.

    Or introduce a floating ipaddress in the Domino Cluster for failover purposes on the HTTP stack. Introduce a heartbeat function to check the availablilty and activate the ippaddress on 1 Domino server ( and start HTTP )

    It's like PaceMaker ( former Heartbeat ) on RedHat and CentOS Linux server works.

    See my blog about it: https://www.angioni.nl/2019/04/25/clustered-frontend-apache-webserver-powered-by-linux-pacemaker/

    Would be great to introduce this service inside Domino, so we can remove the entire frontend.

    By creating dummy url alias in domino server and handling with redirection rules. it can be possible. But its an manual process. The redirection rules required enhancement with http response code like 404 error will redirect to another server.

    How would this work if the load balancer is unknown to the Domino server? At best we can provide documentation on how to correctly configure HighAvailability in iNotes / Verse / etc.
