How to view the status of an xHA pair.

The xHA pair appears on the Servers tab as a single server. The individual DNS/DHCP Servers are no longer listed as they now act as the Active and Passive nodes within the xHA cluster.

To view xHA status:

  1. Select the Servers tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the tab again to ensure you're on the Configuration information page.
  2. From the configuration drop-down menu, select a configuration.
  3. Under Servers, click the name of a server node.
  4. Click the XHA server name menu and select View XHA Status.
    The Servers Status section lists the following details for the servers in the xHA pair:
    • Name—the name of the server. While the servers are in the xHA pair, HA-NODE1 is appended to the server name of the Active node, and HA-NODE2 is appended to the server name of the Passive node.
    • Available—indicates if the server is currently connected to Address Manager.
    • Version—the software version running on the server.
    • Management Interface—the new IPv4 address of the Management interface (eth2) on the Active node (NODE-1); the original IPv4 address of the Management interface on the Passive node (NODE-2)
    • Services IPv4 Address—the new IPv4 address of the Service interface (eth0) on the Active node (NODE-1); the original IPv4 address of the Service interface on the Passive node (NODE-2).
    • Services IPv4 Netmask—the netmask of the Service interface (eth0) on both the Active and Passive nodes.
    • Services IPv6 Address—the optional IPv6 address of the Service interface (eth0) on both the Active and Passive nodes.
    • Services IPv6 Subnet—the subnet of the optional IPv6 address of the Service interface (eth0) on both the Active and Passive nodes.
    • XHA Backbone Enabled—the state of the xHA backbone, either Yes or No. The xHA backbone can be enabled when adding an DNS/DHCP Server to Address Manager, or when creating an xHA pair.
    • XHA Backbone IPv4 Address—the IPv4 address of the xHA interface (eth1) on both the Active and Passive nodes.
    • XHA Backbone IPv4 Netmask—the netmask of the xHA interface (eth1) on both the Active and Passive nodes.
    • XHA Status—the current role of the server in the xHA pair, either Active or Passive.
    • Data Synchronization State—the state of the data replication connection on the server.
    • Local Role—the role of the server in data replication, either Primary or Secondary.
    • Peer Role—the role of the server’s peer in data replication, either Primary or Secondary.
    • Local System State—the state of the server: Initializing, Normal, or Degraded.
    • Peer System State—the state of the server’s peer: Initializing, Normal, or Degraded.
