Configuration Description
Global Service Enabled When enabled, this will start the global service, which will begin the monitoring of Address Managers. Without this enabled, no other service will run properly.
Failover GUI Enabled When enabled, automatic failover will be disabled and you will be able to execute a failover manually if the primary Address Manager is down.
Failover Service Enabled When enabled, when monitoring Address Managers, if there is a problem detected, it will failover from the primary to the secondary Address Manager.
Repair Service Enabled When enabled, this will bring the Address Managers secondary’s into replication after failover. If this is disabled, then trust is broken and you will have all Address Managers as stand-alone servers.
Safe Mode Enabled When enabled, this will evaluate the current primary Address Manager health and determine the course of action without executing the failover actions. This is helpful when performing dry runs.
